A SIX-YEAR old boy left fighting for his life after being hit by a car along a Merseyside seafront was today said to be in a “stable” condition.
The youngster and his eight-year-old sister were both injured as they crossed the Marine Promenade in New Brighton.
The siblings were making their way to a party when they were struck by a 4x4 last Sunday.
The six-year-old boy suffered a serious head injury and a serious fracture to his leg and was described as being “critical”.
His sister had a fracture to her left leg and her condition was described as serious but not life-threatening.
Both children were taken to Alder Hey hospital in West Derby.
Merseyside Police said both children had now had surgery and that they were both in a “stable” condition with the little boy no longer critical.
