MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) – The boy who survived a sailboat accident that took the lives of his two brothers is now taking another step forward in his recovery.

Eight-year-old Isaiah Risland is on his way to Gillette Children’s Specialty Healthcare for inpatient rehabilitation therapy.

His two younger brothers died when the sailboat they were in with their dad tipped over in Clearwater County last month.

On his CaringBridge site, Risland’s family says he is now able to walk well in his ankle braces, and he’s able to feed himself.

The family says they’re grateful for the continued support and prayers they’ve received.
