Heartbreaking photo of British boy, 5, fighting for life in coma after lorry smashes into family car on holiday in ItalyJanuary 3, 2022
THIS heartbreaking photo shows the horror injuries suffered by a British schoolboy who is fighting for life in Italy after a car crash.
The family of five-year-old Dominic Boschetti have released pictures of the little one in a hospital bed after the smash over Christmas.
Dominic "technically died" at the scene, but survived after his father gave him CPR before paramedics arrived, BirminghamMail reports.
Mum Jordan, 43, has given up her job so she can be by his side.
The new image shows little Dominic, a pupil at Inkberrow First School near Redditch, lying unconscious with his teddy in his arms.
The youngster was with his father Guiseppe when their car was hit by a lorry in Montichiari three days before Christmas.
Guiseppe suffered serious leg injuries during the collision. However, despite his wounds, he was able to drag Dominic from the vehicle and resuscitate him.
SCHOOLBOY IN COMA
A GoFundMe to support the family has so far raised more than £15,000.
Corin Hetherington, Dominic's uncle, told WorcestershireLive today: "Unfortunately there is no improvement yet.
"Dominic's eyes are open, but he doesn't seem there. It's like a terrible nightmare."
He said Dominic's mum is "like a rock".
"She is being extremely strong and never cries in front of her son. She is amazing," he said.
'A TERRIBLE NIGHTMARE'
"Dominic is off the ventilator but he is still in a coma and Guiseppe will be sent to a specialist hospital next week to begin rehabilitation on his shattered legs."
He said medics don't yet know if Guiseppe will be able to walk.
"I still physically can't believe how he managed to get Dominic from the car with how his legs are," he said.
"Maybe it was adrenaline or the love for his son to protect him, I don't know."
The family has sent thanks for support and donations from the public at their hour of need.
"There is a wave of support behind us willing Dominic to get better," Corin said.
