Hit-and-run victim Jemal to have life support switched off

JEMAL Lawton remains in a critical condition at a Brisbane hospital, as the fight for his life continues.

His mum on Facebook last night posted that Jemal's life support machine was being turned off.

A Royal Brisbane Hospital media officer confirmed his condition was still critical before The Morning Bulletin went to print.

Jemal was airlifted to Brisbane on March 29 after a car hit him in Rockonia Rd, North Rockhampton.

A man in his 20s has been charged with unlicensed driving and failing to remain at the accident scene and will appear in court on April 14. Family members continue to post their prayers on a Facebook page dedicated to Jemal's recovery.
