Toddler Wakes Up As Family Wanted To Turn Off Life Support (Photos)


The family of a dying toddler had agreed that his life support should be turned off only for him to stun medical professionals by regaining his strength. Two-year-old Dylan Askin, from Shelton Lock, Derby, had contracted an extremely rare type of lung cancer and was so poorly on Good Friday 2016, his family had him christened in his hospital bed, as doctors did not think he would survive.

Dylan’s parents and doctors had made the heartbreaking decision to have his life support machine turned off the following day. However, after the process of doing so had begun, the youngster stunned medics at the Queens Medical Hospital when he regained his strength. By Easter Sunday he was deemed to be stable.

Nearly two years on from the ordeal, Dylan has now beaten his illness and his parents Kerry and Mike are supporting an Easter campaign for Clic Sargent, a charity which helps young people with cancer.
