Three Texan teens have been arrested on Friday, Dec. 3, after allegedly beating up their football teammate and the star athlete of Brazoswood High School so severely that he ended up in the ICU for the past week.

Sixteen-year-old Cole Hagan Texas found himself hospitalized after being lured outside during a house party to be viciously attacked by two of his teammates, 17-year-old Ayden Holland and 18-year-old Logan Huber, the New York Daily News reported.

Hagan was allegedly punched in the face by 17-year-old Reid Mitchell, before being pushed to the concrete street and elbowed three or four times. He was then left there, bleeding from his ears, by the three assailants, according to CBS Austin.

“They left him in the road after they finished attacking him and then texted one of his friends that were in the backyard of this house to say, ‘Hey come get your boy out of the street,’” Cory Hagan, his brother said.

Cole was hospitalized that night and put on a ventilator as he could not breathe on his own. The doctors who checked him said that he suffered multiple skull fractures and a broken collarbone, KHOU 11 reported.

“When he got to the hospital we didn’t know if he was going to make it,” Cory Hagan said. “All of Saturday we were just praying to God that he was going to live.”

On Monday, Cory Hagan updated everyone by saying that Cole was finally breathing on his own, thanking everyone for their support of him while remaining optimistic about his health, saying “we have faith that God will restore his health.”

Mitchell, Holland, and Huber have been arrested and charged with aggravated assault but were released after posting a $20,000 bond each. Their motivations behind the assault remain unclear, and police are still investigating the violent mugging.

Believing that someone was able to record the alleged attack, Hagan’s family is currently offering $25,000 in reward money for anyone who can give them the video that can illuminate the incident further.

Brazoswood High School offered their thoughts and prayers for Cole in a statement and boosted security on the campus. They also warned students not to take retaliatory actions because of the incident, promising to take further action once more information comes to light.
