The elder son goes inside the house leaving Gajavardhan in the Veranda. Hearing the loud noise of the procession and the crackers Gajavardhan gets scared and falls from the veranda which was noticed by their grandmother and he was brought to Manipal Hospital ER and shifted to PICU who is kept under observation waiting for the child to come to conscious.
Doctors are waiting for him to open his eyes until which treating him is difficult. Parents are asked to communicate with the child and try to bring the child to conscious.
Baby’s father Mr. Narayan Swamy is a coconut vendor and mother is a housewife. He earns a monthly income of Rs. 4000 per month depending on the sales. As the baby is showing slow development and his condition is not stabilising they are not able to bare the charges.
Till date their bill amount is Rs. 4,00,000 approximately and might need further Rs. 10 to 15 lakhs depending on the day to day condition of the baby.
As per the consultant doctor, the baby’s condition cannot be ruled out as he is highly dependent on ventilator and may require other 1-2 weeks of admission and later home care and Physiotherapy will be required.
