    Since June 18, Justin Hatchett has had seven surgeries, received more than 60 units of blood and plasma and a tracheotomy. Even though there is a long road ahead of him, his sister Jessica said Justin is doing very well despite what has happened to him.

    The Springfield Sun reported that Hatchett was operating a tractor at his family’s farm on Mackville-Springfield Highway around 9 a.m. June 18 when it suddenly overturned. Hatchett was reportedly penned under the machine for nearly 30 minutes while rescue crews tried to save him.
