The family of 17-year old Christian Carrillo, who has been in a coma since a hit and run accident last weekend, says he is not doing well.
Pneumonia, and possibly meningitis, might be setting in.
On Tuesday, Carrillo's family was visited at by two other victims of traumatic events who showed up to lend their support. They are three families that would otherwise not have crossed paths, but this latest tragedy has brought them together.
The first was 25-year old Erik Schwirtlich, who was attacked and knocked unconscious back in December in downtown Corpus Christi. The second is Amanda Arriola, who was struck during a hit and run accident on New Years Day. The person who hit her never stopped, and has not been caught.
Both came together to lend their prayers and support for Carrillo's family, telling his mother to stay strong during this difficult time. The two said it was a good support system that helped them get through their own recovery.
"It was amazing how many people. I would get stopped daily. 'How are you doing?'," Schwirtlich said. "If all those people could go out and say a prayer and think about Chris, going through more than I've ever gone through, keep him on their mind, it would make my day."
"I think they're great," said Misty Taylor, Christian's mother. "Amanda is absolutely wonderful, and Erik is an inspiration."
Carrillo's family said they are taking things day by day, but Christian's condition does not look good.
