Thodupuzha Boy Declared Brain Dead; Medical Board Yet To Confirm

Kolencherry: According to the latest medical report, doctors have said that the seven-year old boy, who was in a critical condition after being brutally thrashed by his stepfather in Thodupuzha, is brain dead. The administration of the private medical college hospital in Kolencherry, where the boy is admitted in, informed that the medical board consisting of two government doctors are yet to confirm brain death. As the boy is suffering from internal bleeding in various parts and the blood circulation to his brain has stopped by ninety percent, it is very difficult for him to survive and the next 48-hours would be crucial. The scan reports taken after 48-hours' observation indicate that the child's condition is deteriorating due to multiple injuries.
