Patrick O’ Sullivan was thrown ten metres from the frisbee ride at the Mary MacKillop Catholic school fete in Highfields, Queensland on Sunday.

“I have received a text that has four words that we have all been waiting to hear. Paddy is out of the woods,” school principal Donaugh Shirley told the local community. 

“He is out of his coma and is trying to talk to his Mum and Dad.”

It is thought Patrick he may have been too small for the ride and may have passed under the safety bar or over the top.
