Student involved in accident, awake and recovering

By LAUREL V WILLIAMS Friday, January 31 2014

SECONDARY school student, Venoon Michael Doone, 15, who sustained injuries in a vehicular accident while on his way to school, has regained consciousness, but cannot recall the incident.

Relatives have also opted not to tell the schoolboy about the accident. Instead they told him yesterday that he got sick and had to be taken for medical treatment at the San Fernando General Hospital.

“He is still disoriented, but much better. Venoon is talking and asking a lot of questions about why he was at the hospital.

He wants to know when he would be going home. We told him that he left home to go to school and on the way he got sick. He does not know about the accident,” Venoon’s father Vindra told Newsday yesterday.

Venoon, of ASJA Boys’ College, was one of 16 students who sustained injuries on Monday when a truck transporting gravel crashed in the private school bus in which they were travelling.

The incident occurred along the South Trunk Road, La Romaine. The glass windows of the school bus shattered upon impact and students were forced to climb through the windows .

The injured students including nine-year-old Nayaa Maharaj a standard three student of Grant Memorial Presbyterian Primary School, were taken to the hospital where they received medical treatment.

Up to last evening, only Doone remained warded at the Intensive Care Unit (ICU) of the hospital.
