The condition of Anupama,a victim of the road accident which had crushed her leg and had left her battling for life at PGIMER’s Advanced Trauma Centre (ATC),has further deteriorated,with doctors stating that she has acute low blood pressure.

The doctors say that her blood pressure is as low as 65/40 and she is currently in a state of shock,Moreover her kidneys have also been affected after the accident and the consequent gas gangrene. The doctors have also put her on peritoneal dialysis owing to low urine output. Insiders also say that she has not even been responding to any treatment ever since she underwent an amputation of her leg,which had been badly crushed under a CTU bus.

Anupama,16,was admitted at PGI on July 17 after a bus ran over her leg in Sector 18. Her surgery was delayed for more than three days and she got infected with gas gangrene leading to amputation of her leg.

Since then she has been lying unconscious on life support system at Advance Trauma Centre even as doctors say that her chances of survival are abysmally low,owing to the infection in her body,which is rapidly spreading to her body parts including her abdomen area.

Her parents alleged that the negligence on the part of hospital had led to a worsening of their daughter’s condition. They insist that if Anupama had been treated on priority basis,she would have been on the road to recovery by now.

On the other hands,PGI authorities had claimed that there had been no deliberate attempt to delay her treatment and all possible efforts are being made to save her life.
