Biography[edit | edit source]
This boy was infected during the Original Outbreak of the Rage Virus, after which he prowled an abandoned diner in the countryside which was full of corpses. Whether he attacked and massacred the diner after he was infected, or if other Infected killed everyone there before the child came to the diner is unknown.
Thirty days into the outbreak, Jim, Selena, Hannah and Frank arrived at the diner during their journey to Manchester to refuel Frank's taxi. When Jim went into the diner in search of food such as cheeseburgers, the infected child jumped down from on a shelf he was hiding. The boy attacked Jim from behind, but Jim pinned him down onto the floor. Jim then beat the infected child to death with his baseball bat.
Trivia[edit | edit source]
- Just before Jim kills the Infected Child, the child hissed "I hate you!" at him, despite the Child's mouth not moving to match the words. Danny Boyle confirmed that the child speaking in this scene was due to an audio error, and in the 28 Days Later comics, it was implied by Gordon and Luis Rodriguez that Infected cannot talk.
- Some fans believe that the Infected Child is the child seen on the photograph that the camera zooms in on just before the church scene in London.
