Mapleton youth wins Arbor Day tree poster contest

Emma Beach, a fourth-grader at Mapleton Elementary, recently won the Sweepstakes Award for the Utah Arbor Day Tree Poster Contest.

Marshall Burningham had a tragic accident early on the morning of Nov. 9 when he stumbled and fell over the railing at his apartment, falling 60 feet and landing on concrete. It is by the grace of God he is still with us; however, as you can imagine, he was severely injured. Marshall broke his C4 vertebra, leaving him a quadriplegic. His spinal cord was injured but not severed, so we are hopeful he will be able to recover, though we understand it will be a long road. We are extremely grateful Marshall is still with us and his beautiful brain wasn’t injured in the fall.

One summer, Marshall’s inner super hero came out in a time of crisis. “When Marshall was home for summer break from BYU, he was in his bedroom looking out the window as a fire started across the street. He jumped up and ran out of the house,” explained Cindy. Marshall began “banging on the neighbors door; they were asleep and by time they got to the door, the flames were reaching the house.” The flames were so close, the neighbors needed to drive through the flames to escape the danger. “All this happened in a few short minutes. He saved these neighbors lives,” Cindy said. At the time, Marshall was featured in a news article about the experience. Marshall said he didn’t even think about what was happening; he just knew what to do.

Marshall has many people rooting for him as he struggles through his recovery. Brittany Burningham Field, Marshall’s older sister, created a Facebook page, “Prayers for Marshall,” so everyone can stay connected with Marshall during this time. “I truly don’t know why this happened to my sweet-hearted brother, but I know he is a fighter. I know that he will get to the point he will be able to live a happy and fulfilling life. I will be there every step of the way,” Brittany said.

A GoFundMe account has been set up to try and raise money to help cover Marshall’s medical expenses. It can be found at www.gofundme.com/2zqq240.
