A seven-year-old taiwanese boy who was in a coma for over two months after he was repeatedly thrown to the floor during a judo class has died, a hospital said on Wednesday.
The boy, who was only identified by his family name Huang, was rushed to feng yuan hospital in central taichung city on April 21 after he was reportedly thrown 27 times by his judo coach.
He had been in a coma for 70 days with brain haemorrhages and developed respiratory problems as well as multiple organ failure before his parents decided to take him off life support on Tuesday, a hospital official told AFP.
According to the statement, the coach started using some throwing techniques on the child after he said “the coach is a big idiot”. The coach did not stop until Huang collapsed unconscious on the floor , prosecutors said.
