The condition of an Israeli teenager injured in a Palestinian rocket attack on a school bus has worsened.

Daniel Viflic’s condition was downgraded Tuesday to extremely critical and life threatening, according to the Soroka Medical Center in Beersheba.

Five days after a rocket fired from Gaza slammed into a school bus traveling near Kibbutz Sa’ad, located in southern Israel near the border with Gaza, Viflic is in a deep coma and is unresponsive, showing no sign of brain activity, Ynet reported. All medical measures on the boy reportedly have been exhausted.

Viflic, 16, suffered severe head trauma and was given emergency CPR at the scene of the April 7 attack. The bus driver, the only other occupant of the bus, was injured in the leg.
