BOISE — Alyson Defur, the 4-year-old girl injured in a July 7 car accident, remains in critical condition in the Pediatric Intensive Care Unit at St. Luke’s Children’s Hospital in Boise, according to the family’s blog on CaringBridge.org.

On Saturday, the family said many friends and “soon to be” friends of Aly’s stopped by the hospital to pray and sing, something they say Aly loved.

Aly was one of nine people injured in an accident July 7 at the intersection of Orchard and Lake avenues in Nampa. She was pinned when the family’s truck rolled and she was deprived of oxygen.

According to the family’s blog, a CT scan Wednesday showed no brain activity. The family is waiting for several medications to leave her body so they can remove her from life support and her organs can be donated.

In the meantime, the family is praying for a miracle.

“Aly’s story has been heard around the world,” a Friday post on the family’s blog reads, “Africa (where she always told daddy and I she wanted to go) Australia, Kosovo, and Hungary! These are just a few! This girl is powerful! God is powerful and He’s not done with her yet!”

Aly is the daughter of Nampa firefighter Sarah Defur, who was also injured in the accident along with her husband, parents and another child.
