Boy injured in Sur car fire shifted to Khoula Hospital, sister still critical

Muscat: Sulaiman Mohammed, the three-year-old boy, who suffered burn injuries recently, was transferred to Khoula Hospital yesterday by the hospital ambulance, while his sister Gazal is still lying unconscious in the Sur hospital.
Gazal Mohammed sustained 75 per cent burns after she and her brother Sulaiman were pulled from a burning car at a petrol station in Sur last Wednesday.
Rescuer Mohammed Al Hashmi had raced to the smoke-filled vehicle and single-handedly rescued both children after their father, who had left them to buy groceries, raised the alarm.

“The boy has reached the (Khoula) hospital. The father and mother accompanied him. The doctors in Khoula Hospital told the parents their son is getting better,” said Mahmood Abu Atiya, the uncle of the children.
Atiya has stayed beside Gazal, whose medical condition is not clear yet. “Gazal is still in a critical state. We are praying for her to get better.”
A reliable source at Khoula hospital confirmed the news and said the specialists are monitoring Gazal on a daily basis. “We are just waiting for her condition to improve and will immediately transfer her to Khoula hospital,” said the hospital source.
The source added that the hospital is also in regular contact with Sur Hospital. “We are monitoring the medication provided by the hospital to Gazal in Sur. The hospital sends reports every day,” said the source.
Atiya is staying beside the girl now in Sur hospital, waiting for the father and mother to travel back to Sur to be with their daughter. “We are still urging Khoula hospital to send a specialist to the Sur hospital to monitor our Gazal,” he said.
“We are still calling for a specialist burns unit to travel to Sur to help save Gazal,” Atiya revealed. “Even one specialist coming to Sur Hospital from Khoula to check on Gazal’s condition is enough for us,” reiterated the uncle.
