The condition of the 16-year-old Antigua Grammar School (AGS) student, who was struck in the head during a violent confrontation on Saturday, has not improved.
Up until late yesterday afternoon, OBSERVER media was reliably informed that Jaheim Ferron remained in a coma in the Intensive Care Unit at the Mount St Johns Medical Centre (MSJMC).
His Godmother also revealed that he was hooked up to life support machines.
Ferron was rushed to the hospital after receiving a hard blow to the head during an altercation with another teenage boy.
Police sources revealed that Ferron and his eight-year-old brother were involved in an argument with a 15-year-old boy over the use of a basketball court in Villa on Saturday.
The argument turned physical and Ferron was struck with an unknown object.
The police have since picked up the 15-year-old, who up to Sunday was assisting with the investigation.
It was unclear whether or not the teenage was released up to the time this report was filed
Meantime, Ferron’s Godmother Arlene Josiah yesterday called for forgiveness for the 15-year-old who injured him.
In a posting on Facebook yesterday, Josiah called for a National Day of Prayer and urged parents to teach children to love and appreciate each other.
“My Lord I want you to protect our children. This place here need you more than ever our children are hurting one another severely, the devil is a liar he’s taking over our children I need this place to shut down and have a day of prayer we need cleansing,” the post read.
Josiah also urged Ferron’s family to forgive the accused.
