WICHITA, Kan. (KSNW) – The parents of the four-year-old boy who was shot in a road rage incident on Wednesday (Oct. 17) are sharing what they say happened that day and how their son’s recovery is going so far.
The Arambulas are still understandably upset after their son, Andres was shot in the abdomen. They said they continue to replay the moments when the child told them he was shot over and over again in their minds.
“It ended up lacerating a kidney, a liver,” said Angelo Arambula, Andres’ father. “It did end up tearing the muscle and the bullet got lodged into his hip bone and broke his hip.”
“Why?” Angelo said. “Why? What was going through their head? They knew, they know there were kids in the car. You know and that’s all I want to know is why you know. I know without a doubt It was said more than once that there were kids in the car.”
“He’s came a long way,” Angelo said. “He’s up, he’s moving, he’s motivated. He’s encouraged just to get ready and go and get back to living life like we did.”
The parents said Andres has been able to go downstairs in a wheelchair at the hospital and even eat candy. He was visited by the Wichita Chief of Police Gordon Ramsay and firefighters with the Wichita Fire Department too.
A GoFundMe page has been set up to assist with medical bills and other expenses.
