Parker succumbed to his injuries Saturday night.

“Early this morning, Parker went in for his 3rd surgery to do some clean up on his burns, as well as start on some skin grafting for his leg. At the completion of the surgery, the surgeons delivered the news that Parker’s injuries were even more extensive than what we were already aware of and the outlook was extremely bleak,” the family wrote on Instagram.

“A few hours later, we received the update that Parker’s vitals were dropping and he was going fast. We gathered around him as a family, kissed him, hugged him, held his hand, told him just how much we loved him and how proud we were of him. He is the strongest person and has fought so hard.”
