In brief: Absolutely

Any bleeding in the brain is extremely serious and critical.
The cerebellum is especially critical because it is a small compartment in the base of your skull and pressure can build rapidly causing pressure on the brainstem and death. I hope the hemorrhage is small and your friends child does well.
