PEMBROKE PARK, Fla. – The family of a 2-year-old boy who nearly drowned in a Coral Springs swimming pool received a surprise hospital visit from some Miami Dolphins stars.
Jenna and Skyler Edwards posed for a photograph with Miami Dolphins quarterback Ryan Tannehill, his wife, wide receiver Brian Hartline, his fiancé, punter Brandon Fields and long snapper John Denney that they posted on the "Turtle Power for James Edwards" Facebook page Tuesday.
Also in the photo was the Edwards' newborn baby. The Edwards were at the hospital for the birth of their second child when James slipped away from his grandfather and fell into the pool late last month.
A post on the Facebook page said the Tannehills went into the hospital room to pray with James when, three minutes into the visit, James fully opened his eyes.
"Although he has opened them on and off before, they have never been this wide," Jenna Edwards wrote on Facebook.
His parents said James has shown improvement, although he still remains in the hospital.
Jenna Edwards said she and her husband "are on a real high right now" after a visit from players for their favorite team.
