Teen Returns Home After Two Months in the Hospital Following Brain Injury


(KELO) – 16-year-old Lincoln High School student Mhiretab Tsegaye is finally home in Sioux Falls after spending two months in the hospital with life-threatening injuries. He and his parents are grateful for all the support they’ve had following a car crash he survived in November.

Zerhun Dejane was able to find hope as he watched his son, Mhiretab Tsegaye, go through the unthinkable.

“When you’re watching the time that he was in the ICU, those days are very dark. But today, from that dark, hope is showing up,” dad said.

Two months ago, Tsegaye was a passenger in a rollover on Interstate 229 that sent him to the hospital in critical condition.

“The brain injury, which is from the medical providers, what we hear is it takes long time for healing,” dad said. CONTINUE
