Grievous injuries were sustained by him while collecting scrap recently when a portion of a building crashed down on him. He has undergone a surgery in addition to breaking his ribs and collar bone. Due to the accident, he has lost hearing sensation in his left ear and has several blood clots.
The sudden fall of a door frame and a portion of the building's ceiling has affected his lungs due to the compression. His lungs were already weak due to asthma contracted while working in a stone quarry in the past.
The cost of the surgery was Rs. 30,000 and other treatment costs have been Rs. 10,000 so far. These injuries will prevent him from working for the next six months. His son will now be the sole earning member for a family of 5 and cannot handle the medical expenses in addition to the reduced income.
Subramaniah is the uncle of Karthika Annamalai (http://bit.ly/21iWTl9) who is helping him raise funds online for his medical expenses.
