Class 9 Boy Lost His Hands And Leg After A Train Ran Over Him

A train engine ran over my son’s body and he has lost three of his limbs - only his left leg is intact. I sit beside him, trying to console him but I fail. Tears roll down my eyes as I look at him lying him like this but he is hopeful. He says he will be fine. I have no other reason to live now. I am living to fulfil his dreams of having a better life. But I can’t do this alone, I need your help,” - Vinit Kumar, father of 14-year-old Devansh. 


A near-fatal accident has changed the life of this teenager forever - he only has one limb intact now and needs to undergo treatment at the earliest to live.

When I first saw him his hands and leg were already amputated

On his way home from school, Devansh has to cross a railway track. It’s not the first time that he was doing this but on that day, something went amiss. He tripped and fell on the tracks and the right sling of his bag got stuck. He was trying to wriggle out when a train engine came from the other side. Devansh was terrified and couldn’t move his body - the engine ran over him. People around quickly rushed to his help.
When I saw him on the hospital bed with his hands cut up to his elbows and his right leg only till his thighs, I ran out crying. I used to always drop him off to school and even bring him home on my scooter. It was just that day when I didn’t go with him and now I will regret this for my whole life,” - Priyanka, mother. 

Often my son and I can’t sleep at night worrying about the tough days ahead

Devansh has already had two surgeries and has been in the ICU for more than 20 days. The effect of the sedatives are wearing out and the boy is now forced to face the truth.
“He didn’t speak for 2 days after he looked at his hands and legs. But after that, he has always put up a brave front. He doesn’t shed even a single drop of tear in front of us. But there are nights when I catch him staring at the ceiling, his eyes welling up. I try talking to him about other things but I know he is scared. I feel helpless, thinking I have nothing to console him with,” - Vinit. 

I am only a cab driver, there is no way I can save my son without your help

Vinit is a Uber cab driver and doesn’t make much. The parents are desperate to save their son - they have used their savings, borrowed from relatives. But there is no way they can arrange for 35 lakhs.

 
“It has only been a few days since I have started going to work. But I can’t work like before, my mind goes back to my son. I come back early and be with him, feeding him, helping him change his clothes. Devansh’s school friends have come forward and helped us with some money but nothing is enough. I want my son to get better soon. I want him to have a fruitful life ,despite the accident. Without your help, I will fail him.”


The specifics of this case have been verified by the medical team at the concerned hospital. For any clarification on the treatment or associated costs, contact the campaign organizer or the medical team.

Dear Supporters,

Thank you for your support. Devansh has undergone the treatment for his legs recently. A prosthetic for his right leg (picture attached) has been fitted and he has been undergoing training to get used to the prosthetic.

Devansh also celebrated his birthday on 14th September with his family.






The doctors at Amrita Hospital have suggested he undergoes an arm transplant only after he turns 18 years of age. (letter from the hospital attached) 

Therefore, Devansh's father requested if the remaining funds (approx 12 lakh INR) be transferred to Devansh's bank account. The funds will then be made into a fixed deposit to support his treatment expenses once he turns 18 years old.

As donors, if any of you have questions or concerns around this, we request you to please drop us a note latest by Tuesday, 24th September at feedback@milaap.org. Post which, it will be assumed we have your consent for the transfer and initiate the process. Rest assured, Devansh's father will share the details of the transfer and the fixed deposit document within 30 working days of the transferred date.

Regards,
Team Milaap

Dear Supporters,

Thank you for your wonderful support. As mentioned earlier, Devansh is currently recovering from the fall. He had to get about 12 stitches done above his eye. He is slowly getting better. In the meanwhile, we are also looking for artificial limbs for him. Once he stabilizes, his surgery will be scheduled. Please keep praying for him.
