Good news for Beny Berges, Fairfield youth who rallied support from athletes across U.S.

(WTNH)–We have an update for you on Benny Berges. He’s the 8-year-old Fairfield boy we introduced you to last week.

It appears to be great news. It was troubling to learn that arteries in his brain were blocked, which is very often a fatal condition. But, it seems his body has found a way to fix itself.

He may need surgery at a later time, but for now the young hockey player seems to be on thje road to recovery.

Beny could be back on the ice in two weeks.
