A boy who was critically injured in a helicopter crash that killed four people on the Gold Coast on Monday has reportedly woken up.
According to a Queensland Health source, Leon, who was nine years old at the time of the incident, woke up at a hospital on Thursday morning.
His mother, 33, is in a serious condition in the intensive care unit of a Gold Coast hospital with multiple broken bones.
According to Neil De Silva, who is the husband of Winnie, her priority is her son, Leon.
He noted that the boy was unable to communicate or open his eyes due to the injuries he sustained. He also said that Leon moved his thumb when he woke up.
He was only able to lift his thumb around halfway. Unfortunately, the other survivor, a 10-year-old boy from Sydney named Nicholas Tadros, is currently in an induced coma due to his injuries. He underwent multiple operations due to his condition.
According to a friend of the family, Nicholas is currently in an induced coma and is on life support with his grandmother and father by his side.
The other people who died in the crash were identified as Diane Hughes, 65, and Ron Hughes, 57. Ashley Jenkinson, 40, was the pilot of the helicopter.
