Overwhelming support at a fundraiser in Warren Saturday from those who don't even know bright blue eyed 2-year-old Damian Sutton. We're told the toddler has taken a turn for the worse at Children's Hospital in Detroit. He was found severely beaten earlier this week; he's been on life support ever since.

Damian's mother's then-boyfriend 26-year-old Ronald Dimambro, Jr. is behind bars in Macomb County on $500,000 bond. He's charged with first degree child abuse. Doctors tell the Sutton family the pressure on Damian's brain is still very high and if it continues to increase Damian will have permanent damage. Those who love him are still holding out hope he'll pull through. Dimambro is due back in court Aug. 27th.

Another fundraiser will be held at Youngers Irish Tavern, 120 S. Main Street in Romeo on Tues. Aug 27 from 4-9pm. Donations can also be made at any Fifth Third Bank.
