Biker's agony: 6-hr wait with 5 iron rods pierced

HYDERABAD: A biker who had 5 iron rods piercing into his frame and stood in that condition for an agonising six hours after he plunged 10ft underneath from an underconstruction bridge on Pochannapet highway in Warangal on Sunday nighttime is battling for his existence. Gopaldas Suman (25), a resident of Boduppal, used to be operated in Gandhi Hospital on Monday the place medical doctors removed the 5 iron rods.

Miraculously, all his essential organs like middle, kidney and lungs are highest. Gandhi Hospital responsibility resident medical officer Dr M Swetha advised TOI that Suman's liver suffered a slight harm. "Main worry is with multiple cuts to the intestine as Suman had suffered several intestinal injuries for which he is being operated upon. Surgeons are stitching the intestine but his condition is still critical. We will have to wait for post-operative care to see how he recovers," she said.


Suman skidded off the street and fell on the dangerously leftover steel rods on the bridge at round 12.30 am. He had to excruciatingly undergo through being in that state for six hours. Finally, at round 6.30 am, locals spotted him and reported the topic to the government. Bachannapet SI M Bharat, who's investigating the case, advised TOI: "Suman, a driver by profession, was riding the bike to attend a function and was returning to Hyderabad around 12.10am. Within 15 minutes from the time he set out, due to overspeeding, he skidded off the road and directly fell on iron rods, five of which pierced his body. Suman was completely conscious throughout the night despite the rods puncturing his body. Around 6.15am, local villagers who came to fetch water from nearby wells saw him and informed us."


Suman cried for assist however none of the automobiles that passed the district highway may hear him. "We procured a gascutter from Kolanupak Swetambar Jain Mandir and got the rods sawed off so that he can be shifted with the rod portions on his body to the hospital. He was taken to Aler Government Hospital from where he was shifted to Gandhi Hospital for better treatment," Bharat said.


The SI said there used to be no negligence on the a part of the contractor setting up the bridge. The contractor positioned a heap of gravel extending upto a top of 4ft on the roadside to prevent any mishaps.
