Eitan, the only child to survive the cable car accident in the Piedmont region that killed 14 people, was discharged from hospital on Thursday after being hospitalized for 18 days.
The five-year-old boy arrived on May 23 after the accident by helicopter at the Reina Margarita hospital in Turin. In addition to doctors and psychologists, he has been accompanied by his aunt Aya since his parents were killed in the accident.
An ambulance took him to Pavia, where his aunt lives. Medical sources, quoted by the Italian newspaper “La Repubblica”, have shown that his health has greatly improved despite suffering various fractures and trauma.
For the past few days, the child has been told what happened, including the death of his parents, and from now on he will have to undergo psychological treatment.
The Italian authorities arrested three people for alleged responsibility for the accident after confessing that they had deliberately disabled the emergency brake due to maintenance problems while repairing the system.
Prosecutors have identified her as allegedly responsible for several homicides and injuries resulting from the fall of the cable car that linked the cities of Stresa and Mottarone.
The evidence of human error was the main hypothesis the researchers considered to explain why the cabin plummeted about 20 meters. The experts had identified a possible problem with the braking system, which the detainees not only confirmed, but also attributed to a business decision.
