"We are waiting for the reports from the doctors as to when they can be discharged.

"Although my daughters have not completely recovered, they have started to recover and are now able to walk and talk."

Mr Patolo said once his daughters Fisi Peau, five, Grace Patolo, five, and Ana Kaitonua, three, recovered he intended on moving into his new house and work together as a family to get through the traumatic past.
