The fall left him hospitalized in the intensive care unit with severe brain trauma, according to a GoFundMe account set up for the family by his mother’s coworkers. Police said he also suffered a severe cut to his face and broken bones.

Duckworth turned 19 on Saturday, according to FOX 5. He celebrated with a river float day with family and friends.

"He could have spent it with his friends but he came to us and asked us to go with him," his mom, Amanda Duckworth, told the station.

"I didn't realize at the time that was the last day I would have with him," Tommy Duckworth added.

In other interviews with local media, the parents remembered their son as an "All-American" teen who loved to spend time in his truck, outdoors and fishing.

"He was just a little country boy with a heart of gold and he’d give anybody the shirt off his back," Amanda Duckworth told the Dawson County News.

He was also an organ donor.

At around 2 p.m. Thursday, hospital workers gave his remains an honor walk before going into surgery that could potentially save up to five lives, according to Rikki Lynn Anderson, who organized the GoFundMe.

Roberts is being held on a $60,000 bond.
