Flo Rida speaks out after his six-year-old son was hospitalized in the ICU. The rapper’s son, Zohar Dillard, was seriously injured after falling five stories from Jersey City apartment building, as per The Shade Room.
5th-floorThe incident reportedly occurred three weeks ago.
On Thursday, Flo Rida took to his Instagram Story. He shared his first public statement regarding his son’s hospitalization and “tragic fall.”
“Great day, thank you to everyone who reached out with their concerns and prayers for my son. He is getting the best medical care and miraculously survived a tragic fall. I ask for your continued prayers as he undergoes rehabilitation but I would appreciate that this remain a private matter.”
Earlier that day, Steven Haddad, the lawyer representing the child’s mother, Alexis Adams, spoke with TMZ. Haddad shared that Zohar Dillard fell at least 50 feet from the apartment window. According to Haddad, doctors believe that it is a “miracle” the child survived.
Additionally, the lawyer revealed that the 6-year-old is going to have to learn how to walk again. Currently, the child is in a full-body cast with limited movement.
Lastly, Haddad explained that doctors are still determining when Dillard will be able to return home. However, his mother has been by his side “every day at the hospital.”
As The Shade Room previously reported, Dillard’s injuries include “multiple pelvis fractures, left metatarsal fractures, grade three liver laceration, internal bleeding, and collapsed lungs.”
His mother has reportedly filed a lawsuit citing negligence on behalf of the apartment building’s property owners. As well as a construction company and window installation company.
In the lawsuit, Adams reportedly states that the apartment building from which her son fell has “windows that posed a hazardous condition.” More specifically, she alleges that “incorrect-sized guards” on the windows “allowed her son to fall out onto the concrete.”
TSR previously shared a statement from Adams.
“As a single mom to a special needs child, this feels like a nightmare. My heart is broken into a million pieces. I am devastated, angry, and struggling to come to terms with the fact that my only child has suffered severe injuries due to willful negligence of our landlord and others involved in failing to take necessary safety measures.”
Flo Rida is not named a plaintiff in the lawsuit. Additionally, at this time, the rapper’s relationship with the child remains unclear.
Furthermore, whether the 6-year-old was alone during the incident is still unknown.
