NEW DELHI: Two-year-old Falak, who has been fighting for life at the All India Institute of Medical Sciences (AIIMS), was taken off ventilator on Friday morning. Doctors at AIIMS said that Falak was stable but still critical.

"Her lungs have improved, kidney and liver are okay. Falak is tolerating feed. Hope that path to recovery continues," said Dr MC Mishra of AIIMS.

Dr Mishra, however, said that the infection remained a major concern and Falak may require further surgeries.

"Falak has been taken off ventilator. A minor surgery may be required to drain out fluid from brain. Her condition is stable so far, but infection continues to be a cause of concern."

"Today we removed some more collection of fluids from the brain. Falak may require some more surgeries later. We are working towards preventing secondary brain damage. Whatever happened earlier can't be reversed," he added.

"Falak is still comatose and opens her eyes erratically. Chances of her survival are still around 50 per cent. Till the time pus formation doesn't stop we can't say anything. Pus formation is a matter of worry," said Dr Mishra.
