| Friday, April 22, 2011

After nine days in a Tennessee hospital, Casey Bush, the three-year-old son of Matt and TC Bush of Cottontown, TN, succumbed Thursday to injuries that resulted from a fall into a pool on April 12.

Bush was under the care of a babysitter when he fell into the pool at the family home, according to the Sumner County Sheriff’s Department. When he was discovered in the pool, there were still signs of life and he was taken to Vanderbilt University Medical Hospital.

On Thursday, April 21, Casey died at the hospital following removal of the ventilator.

TC Bush is well-known in the trucking industry having entertained alongside Joey Holiday at hundreds of truck shows and events.

In the nine days between the accident and Casey’s death, the Bush family experienced an outpouring of support from not only the trucking industry, but friends, family, fellow members of the church congregation and others across the country, via a Facebook page and event set up for Casey.

The family’s church has also set up a benefit fund to assist the family with medical and funeral expenses. For more information on the fund, click here.
