The six-year-old boy who fell five storeys from the Tate Modern has had “two long and difficult operations” but the full extent of his injuries is not yet known, his parents have said.
Tate Modern: Boy Who Fell Has Undergone Two ‘Long And Difficult’ Operations, Parents Reveal
The child, who was visiting from France, suffered injuries including a brain bleed and spinal, leg and arm fractures after being allegedly thrown by a 17-year-old boy from a 10th-floor viewing platform at the art gallery on August 4.
His parents issued a statement to the organiser of a fundraising page set up on their behalf which has received donations of almost £45,000.
They said: “Our son has already undergone two long and difficult operations.
“He is stabilised, but we still do not know the full extent and severity of his injuries. But he is alive, struggling with all his strength and we remain hopeful.
“We thank you very much for your gifts and all your kind messages of support. You cannot imagine how it helps us to see so much humanity in this tragic ordeal.”
London nurse Vicky Diplacto, whose brother was paralysed in a similar incident overseas, said she set up the GoFundMe appeal “in order that he (the six-year-old boy) may receive gold-standard care and support, alongside supporting his family to receive the ongoing care and support that they may need”.
The teenager accused of throwing their son appeared briefly in the dock at the Old Bailey on August 8 for an administrative hearing charged with attempted murder.
The court was told that psychiatric reports had been ordered, and that any trial would be listed to last two weeks and would be held in the new year.
No pleas were entered and the teenager was remanded in custody.
A reporting restriction bans the identities of both the victim and the defendant being made public.
At an earlier appearance, the court heard that the six-year-old was at the gallery with his parents and they were on the viewing platform “looking over the side and enjoying the view”
The child is said to have walked a short distance from his parents and was allegedly picked up and thrown over the edge in an action that was “carried out extremely swiftly and in one movement”, the court heard.
The suspect was apprehended by members of the public after the incident.Related...
