Kenyans rally to save boy who fell off a swing


Kenyans are rallying on social media to save the life of a seven-year-old boy who has been in a coma since 8 August after falling off a moving roller coaster.
Caleb Odanga sustained serious head injuries after falling from the merry-go-round swing during a school outing at an amusement park in Ruiru, on the outskirts of the capital Nairobi.
The injuries resulted in the boy’s admission to the intensive care unit at a hospital where his medical bill is more than 60,000 shillings ($415; £330) a day.
So far, Kenyans on social media have raised more than $2,400 for the boy’s treatment.
Peter Odanga, the father, has made an online appeal for continued help from the public. He told Kenya’s Citizen TV that the family remains optimistic and continues to pray for his son’s recovery, even though doctors have advised him to put off life support.
