One of the three children who were severely injured in a car crash in Antioch will be removed from life support after it was determined his condition would not improve.
The three children, all 12 years old and part of a “blended family”, were walking on the sidewalk in Manzanita Way and Sycamore Drive in Antioch Friday when they were hit by a car that collided with another vehicle.
Officers arrived on the scene and airlifted two children — Cheyenne and Gianathon — to the hospital via helicopter. The third child, Mason, suffered less critical injuries.
According to Mason’s mother, Jami Christina Marie Hanlin, Mason is “doing well.” He had surgery on Monday to receive a facial graft for abrasions.
Mason’s sister Cheyenne was in a coma but has been brought out of it and was taken off the ventilator. She will be assessed for possible brain damage.
The third child in the accident, Gianation, has not regained consciousness. Unfortunately, he will be removed from life support on Thursday.
“They will be removing Gianathon from life support tomorrow,” a Hanlin family member confirmed. The prognosis for Gianation was not good from the start. It was said that even if he’d survived, he’d be paralyzed from the neck down and on a ventilator for the rest of his life.
“Please continue with your prayers as we still need them,” said Jami Hanlin. “From the bottom of my heart I thank you and love you, may God Bless.”
