Felix Maus: The Boy Who Fell

The story of a ten year old who fell from a tall tree, and the travails suffered (and sometimes overcome) by those who love him.


That Saturday

We were living ordinary lives... when the branch broke, and gravity and death were near at hand.

We landed in ICU...

Felix was 10, skull cracked, brain battered, femur crushed, fear everywhere.

..and survived.

Surviving took the longest 11 days of our lives.
