Flo Rida gives sad update after his 6-year-old son falls from 50ft window

American rapper and songwriter Flo Rida – real name Tramar Lacel Dillard – has offered an update on the condition of his six-year-old son after the boy fell from a five-story window last month.

As per to harrowing reports, Zohar Dillard plummeted 50 feet from a window at his mother’s apartment complex in New Jersey and landed on concrete.

Miraculously, the boy survived the fall, but remains in intensive care after suffering fractures in his pelvis and left foot, a lacerated liver, collapsed lungs and internal bleeding.

The terrifying incident occurred almost one month ago on March 4, as per a lawsuit filed in the New Jersey Superior Court by his mother, Alexis Adams.


Flo Rida took to Instagram late last week to offer an update on his son’s condition, thanking people for their “concerns and prayers”.

“Great day, thank you for everyone who reached out with their concerns and prayers for my son,” the post read.

“He is getting the best medical care and miraculously survived a tragic fall.

“I ask for your continued prayers as he undergoes rehabilitation but I would appreciate that this remain a private matter.”

According to reports, little Zohar suffers from hydrocephalus, a neurological condition which causes an abnormal accumulation of cerebrospinal fluid within cavities in the brain.

His mother, Alexis Adams, who is now suing the building’s management company for negligence, described herself as a single mom and said her heart was broken into a million pieces.

In a statement given to News12 New Jersey, she said: “As a single mom to a special-needs child, this feels like a nightmare. My heart is broken into a million pieces.

“I am devastated, angry and struggling to come to terms with the fact that my only child has suffered severe injuries due to willful negligence of our landlord and others involved in failing to take necessary safety measures.”

Adams also accused Flo Rida of not covering his son’s medical bills – this despite a mandate in a court-ordered child support agreement from 2018 that ordered him to help with health insurance costs.

Adams’s lawyer, Stephen P Haddad, said that the six-year-old remains in a full body cast in hospital. Adams claimed she had previously filed multiple requests with her landlord for adequate window guards.

Speaking to the Daily Mail, one of her neighbor’s expressed his disbelief that Zohar had been able to survive the fall.

James Lucas, 40, said: “He was just on the ground, not moving, I thought he wasn’t going to live.

“I was just downstairs getting Chinese food and there were ambulance everywhere and I had no idea what had happened I just saw the kid, he looked lifeless.”

He went on: “I didn’t even realize it was from the fifth floor until later. You can definitely, if you’re a kid, stand on that sill, but my kids haven’t been here I think they should look into window guards for sure.

“I couldn’t believe he survived that, I mean the 5th floor, that’s a drop. I was only down there for a few minutes, he was down there when I got there.”

We’re sending all our thoughts and prayers in the direction of this poor child. Let’s hope he makes a swift recovery.
