FOR 14 seemingly endless days Mason Forbes-Aitkens' family sat by his bedside as he clung to life.
With his head bandaged and tubes hooking him up to a life support machine, all they could do was offer up prayers in the depths of their despair.
Doctors had warned them recovery was a forlorn hope after the one-year-old fell into a bucket of water at his Ipswich home. They told Mason's family that the only choice they had left was when to end his life.
However at the moment the machine was finally switched off their prayers for a miracle were answered.
