Teen who lost toes back in hospital
Fernando Fredericks, 18, the excavator operator who lost four of his toes on Christmas Eve Day during a freak storm when an electrical pole belonging to Guyana Power and Light uprooted severing four of his toes, has been readmitted to the Suddie Public Hospital Cooperation.
Fredericks’s injured left foot, upon careful examination by doctors, is said to be inflamed. Four of the sutures had to be forcefully removed.
Mrs. Fredericks said that the inflamed leg was the source of the pain her son felt. She added that now that the four sutures have been removed, her son, who remains hospitalized, has not been in as much pain.
And Mrs. Fredericks said that upon a visit to Guyana Power and Light, Anna Regina branch, she was advised by a senior official to submit Fredericks’s medical and other particulars.
The woman is seeking some form of compensation for her son’s injuries.
Fernando Fredericks was standing near to an electric pole at the Anna Regina car park. The pole subsequently fell on his foot and severed four of his toes.
