A four-year-old boy who was left in critical condition after a taxi rammed into pedestrians in Tai Po in August was discharged from hospital Sunday.
“Thank you everyone for your concern… the mountains of blessings, prayers and wishes, allowing Jeet Jeet to recover and be discharged from hospital,” Lau’s father told Stand News.
The deadly car crash on Aug. 22 killed two people, a 63-year-old woman and a 59-year-old man, and injured eight others.
Jeet Jeet was unconscious after being hit, suffering a traumatic brain injury and internal organ damage. He spent 49 days at Prince at Wales Hospital, including a week in the intensive care unit.
Lau said his son still has to rely on a walking aid, and it’s also unclear when he will be able to return to school. But the four-year-old was cheery about finally going home, even playing “pretend cooking” to celebrate.
His mother, who was five months pregnant at the time, was also seriously injured in the crash. She is still recovering and her unborn baby is in stable condition.
The taxi driver, a 63-year-old surnamed Mok, was arrested on a suspected charge of dangerous driving causing death.
