BODEGA BAY, Calif. (AP) — The father of a 4-year-old boy who survived a 230-foot fall from a seaside cliff in Bodega Bay says his child has awakened from an induced coma.
Daryl Johnson tells the Santa Rosa Press Democrat (http://bit.ly/14UiVD9 ) the boy opened his eyes Tuesday after lying unconscious for about a week at Children's Hospital Oakland.
Johnson says his son Sebastian is unable to speak because of a broken jaw but he has shown signs of recovery, including listening to bedside stories from his mother.
The child was on a family outing on a trail at Bodega Head Nov. 10 when he fell from the cliff.
The boy was awake and crying by the time he was loaded into an ambulance and rushed to a hospital.
