Teen pleads guilty to throwing French boy, 6, from top of Tate Modern art gallery

LONDON - A British teenager pleaded guilty on Friday (Dec 6) to attempted murder for throwing a six-year-old French boy from the 10th-floor viewing platform at London s Tate Modern art gallery. Eighteen-year-old Jonty Bravery said I plead guilty. Guilty, yeah correct when asked during a court hearing how he pleaded. The French child suffered fractures to his spine, arms and legs and a bleed on the brain after falling 30m from the open-air platform onto a roof in August. Prosecutor Emma Jones said it was extraordinary the boy had survived. The victim can t be named because of his age. In a statement issued through British police, his family said the boy remained hospitalised and hasn t recovered mobility in all limbs or cognitive capacities. Life stopped for us four months ago, the family said. We don t know when, or even if, we will be able to return to work, or return to our home, which is not adapted for a wheelchair. We are exhausted, we don t know where this all leads, but we go on, the statement added. Police don t believe the victim and the suspect knew one another.
