"Severe" head trauma is what is being reported in the local press here. The fall was about 40 feet onto hard stone tile.

Yes. It was reported that he was lying in a pool of blood and I suspect that may have been from a fractured skull.

More from Daily Mail: His mother was asked about his condition or status. She replied that she holds his hand and she feels he is surrounded by a warm aura and that they are awaiting tests. She attributed the aura to all of the prayers of well wishers.

I'm afraid that with her only description being an aura, it means that he is comatose or fully sedated.

I would be happy to be surprised if the child was not already brain dead.
