Mumbai: It was his first day at office. With much hopes and dreams, he boarded the train from Diva junction to Airoli here, unaware of the terrible fate awaiting him.
Bibin David, a native of Puthukurichy in Thiruvananthapuram, fell off a moving suburban train while travelling to his office and lost both his legs.
“There was a big rush in all the trains. Somehow I boarded the train but couldn’t go inside. When more people boarded from the next stations, the rush was too much. Rest I can’t remember. I was blanked out. When gained consciousness, I was in the hospital bed with both legs amputated,” says Bibin.
He is being admitted to the intensive care unit at the Sion hospital in Mumbai.
Settled in Diva, Bibin lives with his mother and younger brother, a class 12 student, after his father passed away.
Two years back, on a same July 18, Bibin was diagnosed with blood clots in brain. After undergoing treatment for two years, he had taken the last dose of the medicine on 18th of July.
But this 24-year-old lad, who is the sole bread earner of the family, is not ready to give up. He has determined to find a new job soon after leaving the hospital bed.
