Hello
Thanks for writing to HCM

Most likely boy is suffering from cardiac contusion resulting from trauma.
History of patient indicate towards this.
His age doesn't support full thickness myocardial infarction.
Other differential diagnosis are myocarditis,hyperkalemia,pulmonary embolism etc.
He need proper clinical examination and further investigation.

Take Care
