Here is a summary in their own words of what happened on October 16th, 2010 when the Browns took their trip to Fall Creek Falls.
The Brown family went on a camping trip to Fall Creek Falls on October 15th. Tim and Tiffany took two of their three sons on the trip (Colby, who at the time was age 4 and Caleb, age 2). They also had a 9 month old, Conner who stayed with family in Nashville. Tim and Tiffany were enjoying a beautiful day in the park with the boys and hiked to the bottom of Fall Creek Falls. They made it to the bottom of the falls when a large rock came down from above. Tiffany was holding Caleb when the rock struck him in the back of the head. They rushed Caleb back up the trail to get help. Caleb was airlifted to TC Thompson’s Children’s Hospital
in Chattanooga, TN where he remained for nearly a month in critical condition. From there Caleb went to stay another month at Scottish Rite Children’s Rehabilitation Center in Atlanta, GA. This blog records the events as they happened as well as the most recent updates on Caleb’s recovery.
Due to the numerous requests for updates on Caleb’s recovery, the Brown family has set up a Facebook page and makes regular posts daily on how Caleb is doing. You can join Caleb’s Facebook page by clicking here.
There are two main funds that have been set up, a trust fund that is strictly to help the Brown family with medical expenses and another fund set up by 180 Degrees Ministries in Murfreesboro, TN to help with other related costs.
