GREENVILLE, N.C. (WITN) - ECU baseball commit Parker Byrd, who was injured by a boat propeller in an accident this weekend, had successful surgery Wednesday night.

His mother shared an update on Facebook Thursday. Surgeons repaired 5 major muscles and they were told Parker was within a millimeter of losing his entire leg in the accident.

According to the post, parker will be able to walk, run and have a normal life after rehab. There is hope he might play baseball again someday with extensive rehab and training.
