Philip Caler Update


A Booker teenager critically injured during an FFA conference last year is out of a coma and has responded to his family.

Philip Caler is now in a long-term care facility in the Oklahoma City area.

The Booker ISD superintendent says recently when Caler's family went to visit he turned his head towards them. He also grimaced and made sounds when they told him they had to leave.

Caler's injury happened last October during the FFA Conference in Indianapolis. While at a mall he fell 40 feet from an escalator, suffering head trauma that left him in a coma.
