Suresh and Lakshmi- who are waiting for Duraisamy to recover from his ordeal
He was thrown away to the road in the impact of the accident.
In the late night hours 1st June, Duraisamy was traveling with his son after work. His son was driving. There was a lorry approaching at high speed. Suresh stopped the scooter on the side of the road, waiting for the lorry to pass.
When the lorry came close to them, the passenger side door opened. Suresh was able to duck, but Duraisamy did not see the door open at such high speed, and was thrown away.
He sat there bleeding and no doctor came to attend to himDuraisamy lost consciousness then. He was losing a lot of blood. Suresh and the lorry driver rushed him to the government hospital, but doctors did not attend to him. When Sudha and Lakshmi went to see him at the hospital, he was sitting on a ward bed, bleeding profusely, with no doctor attending to him. The skin on the right side of his face had peeled off.
Duraisamy was in the ICU for multiple days
Duraisamy is very weak already, and hence his bones were badly damaged in the accident. He had multiple facial fractures. The entire right side of his face was open- leading to air exposure. This caused inflammation of the brain.
