According to reports, the father of a 10-year-old boy has died, days after he fell in their Nebraska home and was found being cared for by his son.
According to The New Zealand Herald:
A 10-year-old boy cared for and kept his father alive for more than a week after the man slipped on a wet floor in their Nebraska home, struck his head and became unresponsive.
Peter Asumani told a police investigator that he fed his father, 45-year-old Bienvenu Asumani, and gave him liquids, investigator Cynthia Koenig-Warnke said in affidavit filed in Lancaster County Juvenile Court. The investigator went to the family’s home in Lincoln, Nebraska, on Friday after the boy’s principal called police to report that he hadn’t been in school for four days, Lincoln police spokeswoman Katie Flood said.
Asumani was breathing and his eyes were open, but he didn’t respond to any questions, Koenig-Warnke said in the affidavit.
He was taken to Bryan Medical Center West hospital, while his son was placed in state custody. Hospital spokeswoman Lori Lee said Monday that she had no information on Asumani.
Peter Asumani keeping his dad alive after his fall isn’t the only amazing story of care and survival in the past few days. Earlier today we reported a story out of Poland where a dog was able to keep a young girl alive in freezing temperatures.
