The community of Muskogee is rallying behind a teenager who was hurt after school last Wednesday.
Sophomore Harley Fain was reportedly seriously injured last week after school and was treated at a Tulsa hospital.
Sophomore student, Madison Hicks, tells FOX23 Harley is more than a classmate, but is a very close friend.
“He’s basically like my brother so when this all happened, it just kind of hurt,” said Hicks.
She and other students are working to show their classmate and friend that they care through various gestures.
“Everyone at this school cares about him,” said Hicks.
Hicks is selling green tee-shirts inscribed with “Pray for Harley” for $10. She says the money will be donated to the family to help with medical expenses.
Students at Muskogee High School wore green on Monday and prayed for their classmate.
Students are also showing support for Fain by using the Twitter hashtag “prayforHarley.”
Another close friend of Fain, Gizela Iniguez, tells FOX23 she hopes the gestures illustrate to the community that they are pulling for their peers’ recovery.
“Everyone has really come together as a community and is praying for him,” said Iniguez.
School officials have not confirmed the details surrounding the incident. Melany Carey with Muskogee Public Schools released this statement last week.
“A student was injured after school hours in an accident. Although we have been in constant contact with his family, due to federal student protection laws, we are unable to say anything else at this time. Our thoughts and prayers are with him and with his family.”
