Mother of Age 4 Boy Who Shot Himself Told He'd Likely Be Brain Dead, But 'God Says Different'

A 4-year-old boy from Oakland, California, is being called a miracle after surviving an injury that ought to have killed him.

On March 27, 2019, Na’vaun Lamarii Price Jackson reportedly found a gun under a bed inside the home of his mother’s boyfriend, who told police he had forgotten to lock the weapon up.

Brijjanna Price, the boy’s mom, told reporters she has no plans to return to that home again.

“I don’t even plan on talking to anyone associated with that house,” she said at a news conference.

Price was told by doctors at UCSF Benioff at Children’s Hospital her son would most likely suffer severe brain damage and never walk again, according to KTVU.

But after coming off of life support and out of and a medically induced coma, Na’vaun is defying the odds by responding and beginning to eat on his own.

“He’s breathing on his own, he’s doing something different every day,” Price told KTVU. “Everything the doctors saying… God says different.”

And that is being proven with every new video the boy’s grandfather, Ramon Price, posts on his Facebook page.

One video shows the sweet 4-year-old giving his grandad a high five. Another shows him trying to take a bite of food.

“Thanking God something new everyday he’s getting stronger and stronger,” Ramon wrote on Facebook.

“What a Mighty God we serve,” he wrote in an earlier post.

“Prayer really does change things,” the proud grandfather continued. “From ICU to physical therapy. Please continue to lift my grandson myself and the rest of my family up in prayer.”



We are so glad to hear Na’vaun is out of the ICU and doing better each day. If you would like to support the Price family and make a donation toward their medical bills, visit their GoFundMe page.
