When Bryan was two years old, he suffered a burn accident by falling into a pot of boiling water where he played. The accident caused burns across 46% of his body (back, chest, arms, buttocks, and genital area).
At first, Bryan was taken to Hospital Humberto Alvarado in Masaya, where he was later transferred to the APROQUEN Burn Center.
Due to the severity of his burns, Bryan was directly admitted to the Intensive Care Unit (ICU) where he stayed for 36 days before transferring to the general ward for 4 days for a grand total of 40 days of hospitalization.
During this time, Bryan underwent 20 surgical procedures before being released from the hospital on January 25, 2012.
After recovering from his accident, Bryan has become a role model for many children. His contagious smile has touched many hearts. Every day, Bryan walks a kilometer and a half to get to his school located in Nindiri, where he is enrolled in preschool and has become an exemplary student in his primary school education.
Bryan’s mother Margelia Solano describes her son as a restless, cheerful, and playful child. She enjoys telling the story that after doing his homework, Bryan likes to run around in his backyard and play with the neighborhood children of his age. Bryan is a regular visitor to APROQUEN’s Reading Nook.
When asked what he wanted to be when he grows up, Bryan expressed his wish is to become a fire fighter.
