THE mum of a boy who fell from an upstairs window has thanked the public for their support.
Ayan Muddaser's mum says she is overwhelmed with the messages left by people in the town on social media sites to say they were praying for the tot as he continues his recovery.
She told the Mail that doctors at Birmingham Children's Hospital are surprised by the rate at which he is recovering, having made the decision to remove him from the intensive care unit over the weekend.
The two-year-old was taken to the hospital by air ambulance last week after falling from an upstairs window at the family home in Shobnall Street. Doctors thought that he had fractured his skull and he spent the first few days under sedation.
He is now on a children's ward and is currently receiving antibiotics having contracted a chest infection while in hospital. He is able to respond with movements but is not yet talking.
His mum said: "It's remarkable how well he's doing at the moment. I've just been sitting and talking to him, I've calmed down quite a bit now. When he first went in to hospital I was just shocked.
"He isn't talking back but he knows I'm his mum. He just looks at me and it's going to take time but he is doing really well. I'm so happy."
She says that doctors are likely to keep him on antibiotics for the next two and a half days as he continues to overcome the chest infection but that there does not appear to be any long-term damage as a result of the fall.
She also paid tribute to those that had been praying for him in what she described as a 'horrible few days', continuing: "We really appreciate the support that people have shown towards us and Ayan.
"We're thankful that people have kept him in their thoughts and were praying for his recovery."
