Sydney boy hospitalized in coma after being dragged in car for 2km
The 15-year-old is currently Westmead Children’s Hospital, but now remains in a serious but stable condition after the driver was arrested.
New South Wales police released a statement that a teenager is now in an induced coma after allegedly being dragged 2 km through Sydney's streets before falling from a car.
According to the statement, around 7 p.m. on Friday, there was an argument between a 19-year-old man and a 15-year-old boy in a car in Blacktown. When the 19-year-old drove away, the boy was dragged by the car until he fell from it near a gas station.
He was first taken to Blacktown Hospital and then was transferred to Westmead Children’s Hospital, but he now remains in a serious but stable condition.
After inquiries and questioning were conducted, a car was stopped by officers near the location where the boy was found.
As a result, not only was the driver arrested but he was charged with dangerous driving causing grievous bodily harm, negligent driving causing grievous bodily harm, and the supply of a prohibited drug.
The man from Riverstone was denied bail and is due to appear at the Parramatta local court on Saturday, as police urge anyone with information or footage proof to come forward.
