Engineering student left paraplegic after tree falls on her
A young engineering student in Mumbai has become paraplegic after a tree fell on her during the heavy rains. 20-year-old Shreya Raut was brought to a hospital in a paraplegic state. After seven hours of surgery, her condition did not improve.
Shreya had no sensation from the waist down after the tree fell on her. She went through a seven hour surgery at Hinduja Hospital and her recovery will take a while. There is also no knowing to what extent she will be able to recover.
Just last week, a municipal sweeper was left partially paralysed after a tree fell on him in the heavy rains.
Officials said that the tree crash was so major that six people were required to move the tree. Shreya and her relatives were returning home after a movie when the incident happened.
