Six-year-old boy thrown from tenth floor of the Tate Modern is now able to sit up and use a spoon – The Sun

THE boy seriously injured when thrown from the tenth floor of London’s Tate Modern art gallery is now able to sit up and use a spoon.

The French lad, six, suffered a fractured spine, brain bleed and broken arms and legs in August’s horror.

His family say that “after a slump”, their “smiling little boy” seems to be coming back.

They revealed on a GoFundMe page that has raised £200,000 for his treatment: “He has gained muscle tone and enough strength to manage to sit longer without the help of his corset.

“He can almost eat all of his meals on his own, holding his spoon with his right hand.

"As he has more strength, he also has more breath and for that reason, we understand better what he says and he manages to speak to us more."

The family also had a message for their supporters during the coronavirus pandemic.

They added: "We are very moved to see that you continue to think of our little knight in these difficult times.

"Please stay safe and take care of yourself and those you love."

Autistic Jonty Bravery, 18, of Ealing, West London, admitted attempted murder in December.

He has been remanded in custody awaiting sentence.
