Members of the community are praying for the recovery of a little boy who fell from an upstairs window here in Castleisland on Tuesday evening.

The accident happened at Hogan’s Place – a small residential development off Lower Main Street. After the discovery, the little boy was taken by ambulance to University Hospital Kerry in Tralee before being moved to Temple Street Children’s University Hospital in Dublin.
Medically Assessed
He suffered bruising as a result of the fall. A source close to the family of the little boy said that he is in an induced coma and is being medically assessed.
Locals are shocked and upset at the accident and the injury to the little boy and have asked for prayers for a full recovery for the little man.
Lighting Candles
A local woman who has been lighting candles and praying for the little boy since she heard of the accident last night, wondered how she or anyone else could help the family in the situation.
However you pray, to whomever you pray – do send yours and good karma in this little boy’s direction.
