MIRACLE BOY: Tot found near death by Brampton train tracks continues recovery

MIRACLE BOY: Tot found near death by Brampton train tracks continues recovery


Around his Brampton home, he’s known as Day Day, but around Sick Kids hospital, they call him “The Miracle Boy.”

Down to nearly his last breath when a Peel police officer and his canine partner found him, sources say the five-year-old has made some remarkable strides in just three days.

“Davion had a good night,” reports his great uncle Derrick Thomas.

“Last night his tube was removed, he is off (life) support and is breathing 100% on his own.”

It seems prayers from across the GTA and beyond are working, but he’s not out of the woods yet.

The boy, who was found Thursday with severe head wounds after an alleged attempted murder is “receiving a small amount of humidified oxygen to prevent thick mucus and drying of his airway.”

He has been in a medically-induced coma, but doctors are seeing progress there too.

As of Sunday afternoon, nearly $2,700 has been raised for the boy.

Linda says all money will be earmarked for his medical recovery.

“We continue to pray for him to wake up, open his eyes and for his complete recovery” said Derrick.
