Nicholas Tadros, a 10-year-old from Sydney, was critically injured when a helicopter crashed on the Gold Coast on January 2.
He was taken off life support on Monday. After a remarkable recovery, he is currently holding his father’s hand. His mother and three other people died in the crash.
According to his father, Nicholas has been off life support for the past few days.
He said in a Facebook update that his son’s body has responded well and he is currently on a ventilator to support his breathing.
His sedation medication has also been lowered to check if he is responsive.
Although Nicholas is able to hold my hand, he has not been able to move his legs due to the multiple broken bones in his legs.
He is scheduled to undergo two more medical procedures next week. One of these is an operation on his right ankle, which will be carried out on Friday.
The family would like to extend a special thank you to all of the people who have shown their support for Nicholas.
The funeral for his mother, Nicole, will be held on Monday.
The investigation of the crash is still ongoing and is expected to conclude sometime in 2024.
