GOODLAND TWP. — Three weeks and two days after a serious farm accident prompted an airlift from his Kohler Rd. home, 14 year-old Kaleb Parsch returned Wednesday, again by air.

Around 3 p.m., family friend Steve Francis, owner of Country Smoke House in Almont, landed his helicopter in the Parsch's front yard with Kaleb and mom, Sandy on board.

Doctors at C.S. Mott Childrens Hospital gave Kaleb the okay to return home after the teen made considerable progress following countless surgeries to repair two broken arms and other fractures to his face, back and neck.

He was injured on Nov. 12 when his coat got caught in a moving post hole auger while building a lean-to for his farm animals.
