 ‘He’s a fighter’: 9 months old Baby survives 25 heart attacks in one day

“It was the worst hour of our lives – going from being new parents to dealing with a baby that we’re being told that you need to expect the worst”, his father Steven Fry told ITV News.

At nine months, Theo survived 25 cardiac arrests in just 24 hours – thought to be the most endured by anyone over the course of one day in the United Kingdom.

But, even after contracting sepsis and enduring 17 operations - two of which open heart surgery - Theo’s health has now stabilised.

“He’s just a fighter”, his mother Fauve Syres tells ITV News.

“We’re lucky that we wake up every day (to him) and can’t believe it”, added Mr Fry.
