Nicholas Tadros, a 10-year-old boy from Sydney, suffered a major setback in his recovery from the crash of a helicopter at the Sea World in Australia.
His friend Charlie Bakhos said on Saturday that the operation had failed. He was left fighting for his life after the helicopter crashed on the Gold Coast on January 2.
In an emotional post on Facebook, Bakhos wrote that Nicholas might have to have his right foot removed.
He also revealed that the boy did not know that his mother died in the accident. He asked the community to pray for Simon, Nicholas’ father.
Bakhos said that Nicholas would have to face his friend in the coming days to inform him of the death of his mother.
He also said that the boy might lose a foot. His mother, who was 36 years old at the time of the accident, was farewelled at a service held at Saint John the Baptist Church in Mount Druitt.
Simon Tadros, Nicholas’ father, held back his tears as he delivered his eulogy at the Maronite Catholic Church in Western Sydney.
He described his wife as a special person who was able to protect him and their children.
During his speech, Tadros said that he would always love his wife, who he referred to as his beautiful wife.
He also thanked everyone who attended the service. The crash killed British couple Diane and Ron Hughes and Ashley Jenkinson.
The funeral for Jenkinson was held on the Gold Coast, on January 13
. The Air Transport Safety Bureau’s investigation into the incident is not expected to be completed until 2024.
