Actress Mia Farrow’s son, Thaddeus Wilk Farrow, has passed away from injuries sustained in a car accident in Danbury, Conn., according to reports.
The Hartford Courant reported that Thaddeus Wilk Farrow, 27, was found severely injured in his car at 12:45 p.m. ET on Wednesday September 21st and was suffering from life-threatening injuries. He was taken to Danbury Hospital, where he was pronounced dead at 2:30 p.m. People magazine confirmed the news with police. Police told The Hartford Courant there was “no criminal aspect” to the death. USA TODAY has reached out to Farrow family representatives seeking confirmation.
Mia Farrow adopted Thaddeus from an orphanage in Calcutta, India, in 1994. He was a paraplegic and polio survivor. Vanity Fair did a profile in November 2013 of Mia Farrow and her 14 adopted and biological children. The article described Thaddeus as a car mechanic studying to become a police officer and explained how Thaddeus had been left in a railway station as a child in Calcutta and forced to crawl on his hands and stubs of legs to beg for food. Later, at an orphanage, he was chained to a post, and kids would throw rocks at him to prompt the mannish growls he made. When Mia saw him, she says, she had a powerful reaction: “That’s my son.”
