Police have confirmed that Tropical Cyclone Winston survivor Salanieta Koto, who was found after strong winds battered the 40-foot container she had taken refuge in on February 20 in Naisoso, Nadi, is still in critical condition.

And the 26-year-old electrician, who had suffered a massive electric shock in Natabua, Lautoka last Sunday, is also still in a critical condition.

He is an employee of the Suva based sub-contractor Power Electric Limited and was working on a broken power line when the incident took place. He is currently admitted at the ICU ward at the Lautoka Hospital.

Police spokesperson Inspector Josaia Weicavu said, “Both victims are still admitted and in critical condition at the hospital. Their statement will be recorded once they are discharged from the hospital.”
