His priest Father Suresh Kumar provided an update on Friday on the young boy’s battles saying the 10-year-old has been able to speak with his father Simon.
‘A billion thanks to God. He doesn’t have a brain injury,’ he wrote on Facebook.
‘Simon is able to talk to him and Nicholas responds very clearly with names, dates, though his voice is bit slurred. He is still on partial sedation.’
‘His mum Vanessa might have grabbed his head and protected him at the impact.
‘She is a hero. Nicholas will be able to tell us when he is able to recollect. May Vanessa’s soul rest in peace.’
Father Kumar said Nicholas’ kidney function had appeared to improve after fears were raised he could go into renal failure.
‘Doctors have been trying to save this right leg which is shattered very badly,’ he wrote.
‘We have got to keep praying that his leg is not amputated as the danger of losing his leg is still looming.

‘Most probably, the doctors will decide about it by next week as the virus infection is still severe.’
He thanked the public for their well-wishes and said their ongoing support had helped the family.
‘You know very well, how bad his condition was and it is because of our prayers he is taking baby steps in his health,’ he wrote.
‘Overall, our little champ is fighting the good fight (remember he knows karate as well…) and keeps improving.
‘I can assure you that it is because of our prayers, Nicholas is able to achieve this.’
The 10-year-old has been receiving treatment in hospital for weeks after surviving the horror crash.
His current state meant he was unable to attend his mother’s funeral and say his final goodbye.
