Girl thrown onto highway in critical condition
The young girl who was tossed onto Canada's busiest highway before her father jumped to his own death is in worse condition in hospital than previously thought.
Toronto's Hospital for Sick Children offered its first official word on the girl's condition Tuesday. It says Inara Amarsi is in critical condition with chest and abdominal injuries. She is unconscious and breathing only with the help of a ventilator.
Previous media reports had said the girl had undergone surgery to stop internal bleeding. Others said she was alert and talking.
But hospital officials say the five-year-old had not been operated on since she was admitted Sunday night.
And in her first statement, the girl's mother thanked the public for the interest they have shown in her daughter's well-being.
