& # 39; We must be strong for our brave little boy & # 39 ;: gripping update from the parents of the boy thrown 30 meters from the top of the Tate Modern
The parents of the six-year-old French boy who is thrown out of the Tate Modern have written his supporters.
Here is their full letter:
& # 39; We are sorry not to have to give you more news more often. Really.
& # 39; Our little boy no longer knows how to speak, eat or move his body, but he is starting to do his best to move his tongue, right arm and hand. We see his efforts. We believe with all our heart that he will find the way, from his head, to do everything again. He is very brave. He keeps smiling and responding to our jokes. We are unfortunately starting to see his suffering, since two days, when he understands that he is unable to move or eat. He actually understands everything, but does not understand why, for example, he fails to eat a little yogurt or swallow it … and he wants it so badly that he can …
& # 39; Today we want to tell you that we don't have the choice: we have to be strong for our little boy. Firstly because he keeps smiling and makes bold progress, and secondly because we see that you trust us to take care of him. And for that we thank you very much. We will do everything we can to stay strong and take care of him. We promise. We hope we have better news for you later. & # 39;
& # 39; Thank you all xxx & # 39;

The attack on the boy last month made Britain aghast.
The police were called to the Tate Modern in London on Sunday 4 August at 2.40 pm amid reports that a boy had been thrown out of the Tate Modern viewing platform.
Witnesses described how the boy's mother & my son, my son & # 39; shouted as she hurried to the elevators trying to reach him downstairs.
The six-year-old was faced with two long and difficult surgeries after being left with a broken back and other broken limbs and bleeding in the brain.
The teenager later accused of attempted murder was slapped in the face by a furious man who saw him throw the child over a barrier on the tenth floor viewing platform of the art gallery in central London. He landed 100 feet on a flat roof, five floors below.
A witness, who did not want to be mentioned, also claimed that guards had initially brought the suspect to a cafe, believing that he was a relative of the victim.
But when he was slapped by a witness, he was dragged to one of the toilets and locked up for his own protection.
A witness said: & # 39; I heard the impact and then screamed from above while a woman screamed, "He is my son! He is my son!" I went in because the screaming was horrible, the boy made no noise, but the people from the viewing platform screamed. & # 39;
Supporters have raised nearly £ 100,000 to cover the French supporter's recovery and all the care he needs
A teenager allegedly picked up a boy, six, and threw him from the viewing platform in the Tate Modern on Sunday, August 4 with the child landing five floors on the roof
Visitors locked up in the art gallery registered the arrival of the helicopter on Bankside
Corinne Brookes, 25, arrived on the viewing platform seconds after the incident.
She said: & People screamed and screamed and these two boys looked like they were fighting, they grabbed each other. The two boys held another man as if they were fighting.
& # 39; I went inside and said to the security lady: & # 39; Something is going on & # 39 ;. Then I saw a woman climb, with her leg and arm over the railing on the balcony.
& # 39; At that time people grabbed their children and screamed and cried, so I thought something terrible had happened, so I started running down the stairs and other people were running.
& # 39; As I went downstairs, a woman cried out her eyes and I said: & # 39; Is everything alright? What exactly happened? & # 39;
& # 39; She said, "They threw him away, someone threw a child away."
The viewing platform, which has a bust-high barrier, is part of the £ 260 million Tate extension known as the Blavatnik building. It offers panoramic views of London.
The gallery was the most popular tourist attraction in Britain in 2018, with 5.9 million visits, according to the Association of Leading Visitor Attractions.
