Innaloo, Perth: Boy hit by car, Finn Salter, state of health

The mother of a three-year-old who fell into an induced coma after being hit by a car over the weekend has shared some good news.

A three-year-old boy who was hit by a car near an apartment complex in Perth woke up from an artificial coma.

Around 3:45 p.m. Sunday, Finn Salter was drawing in the driveway at Innaloo when he was hit by a car.

Finn was taken by ambulance to Perth Children’s Hospital and placed in an induced coma, suffering from head trauma and skull fractures.

His mother Amy shared the news on social media that Finn had woken up.

“We are still evaluating the recovery path,” she wrote on Facebook.

“At the moment, Finn is slowly coming out of the induced coma and breathing on his own.

“Thank you all for your support”.

The 29-year-old single mother watched in horror as the accident unfolded over the weekend after failing to reach her son in time.

Started by family friend Jimi Trengove, GoFundMe has already raised $13,000 of its $30,000 goal to help cover Finn’s medical expenses.

“I am asking all of my friends, family and businesses to dig deep to help raise as much money as possible to help this little family during this extremely heartbreaking and difficult time,” Mr. Trengrove said.

A 31-year-old male driver assists the police in the investigation.

Major financial investigators are urging anyone who saw the accident or a Mitsubishi Outlander driving in the area prior to the accident to call Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000 or report online at
