Statement from family of 13-year-old victim in Eaton Centre shooting

The 13-year-old victim from the Eaton Centre shooting is in fair condition.

In response to the large volume of media requests, his parents are releasing the following statement:

“We want to extend our deepest appreciation and gratitude for the public’s concern and well wishes. EMS and the medical team at SickKids acted quickly to save his life. After complicated neurosurgery, we are happy to say that he is doing well, all things considered; he is alert and talking. It will be a long healing process, but we are optimistic that he will recover. We thank you for your support and we also ask for our privacy at this time.”

All media requests for patients and families under the care of SickKids should be directed to Communications & Public Affairs.
