A 10-YEAR-old boy has been lying unconscious in ICU of Dayanand Medical College and Hospital (DMCH) and is battling for life. He needs financial help as his family cannot pay the hospital bills.

The tragedy hit the family on October 5 when brothers Gurjit alias Harsh,10,and Daljit were hit by an Indica car near Jalandhar bypass and the car driver ran away. Since then Gurjit has been lying unconscious in the ICU of DMCH. His hospital bill has mounted to Rs 65,000 and his family has no money to pay.

“Doctors say there has been severe damage to brain due to which he is not gaining consciousness. We have no money. I don’t know how to save my kid’s life,” said Rajinder Kumar,his father. Kumar is a clerk in a local hosiery unit but has not been working for the past eight months due to the disc problem and has appealed for help.
