Seventeen-year-old Jahhym Azoo – the victim of a violent attack at Grays Farm last week – has undergone a number of surgeries at the Mount St. John’s Medical Center (MSJMC) over the weekend in an attempt to save his life.

In an update from his mother, Odiel Furlong, three doctors from Trinidad & Tobago performed the operations on the teenager who has been unresponsive and on life support in the hospital’s Intensive Care Unit since Thursday of last week.

Doctors had given him a 50 percent chance of survival due to bleeding on his brain.
