A BOY “thrown” from the tenth floor of London’s Tate Modern can only smile to communicate, his family said yesterday.

The lad, six, fractured his spine, legs and arms and suffered a bleed to the brain when allegedly hurled off a viewing platform.

The French family said he now “struggles to understand why he can’t move, swallow or talk”.

On a GoFundMe page that has so far raised £80,000 they wrote: “Our little boy begins to do his best to move his tongue, his right arm and hand.

“We see his efforts. We believe with all our heart that he will find the way, from his head, to do everything again.

“He is very brave. He keeps on smiling and reacting to our jokes. We begin to see also, unfortunately, his suffering.

“He doesn’t understand why he cannot manage to eat or swallow a bit of yoghurt and he wants so much to be able to do it. We have to be strong for him.


“First because he keeps on smiling and making progress bravely, and secondly because we see that you count on us to take care of him.”

The boy, who cannot be named, was visiting the gallery with his mum on August 4.

A boy of 17 has been charged with attempted murder. He is due to stand trial next year.

Paramedics were seen treating the boy at the scene before he was taken to hospital
