Forty-seven-year-old Lilowtie Persaud, of Fourth Street, Alexander Village, is still clinging to life at the Georgetown Public Hospital.
The woman was struck down last week Sunday by a car driven by an unlicensed 16 year-old who was subsequently charged and remanded to prison.
When this newspaper visited Persaud in the female surgical ward, she was being attended to by relatives.
A device has since being attached to the woman’s head to help stabilise it. A medical report had shown that Persaud suffered spinal damage and is paralyzed from her shoulder down.
A relative who was at the hospital told Kaieteur News that the woman’s condition is still the same.
The relative further told this newspaper that Persaud’s condition requires someone to do everything for her.
“We got to do everything for her because she can’t move or would she able to move”.
The woman’s brother, Vijai Manohar, had told Kaieteur News that he was sitting outside his yard when the accident happened. He said that his sister was standing behind him watching him play, when a car that was coming from a westerly direction suddenly veered out of control.
The car had missed the domino players and picked up Persaud and deposited her in a nearby drain.
Manohar said that the car uprooted an almond tree before coming to a halt after crashing into a concrete fence.
He said that a neighbour and onlookers picked up the injured woman and rushed her to the hospital, while he and some other persons approached the car in which three young men were. (Latoya Giles)
