After an hour, he pushed the table with his foot, causing the chair to fall backwards and his head to hit the floor.

This prompted the toddler to cry loudly before falling unconscious, which restaurant workers witnessed as well.

His father promptly rushed him to a private clinic, where doctors advised him to bring his son to a hospital due to the severity of his condition.
