The Year One student of Nasavusavu District School who was hit by a private vehicle on Wednesday is recovering at the Savusavu Hospital.
Six-year-old Josevata Vuluma of Naqere, Savusavu was transferred from Intensive Care Unit (ICU) to the children’s ward yesterday.

Josevata was hit by the vehicle while crossing the road after getting off from a school bus on Wednesday in Naqere.

Mother Patirisa Tuilevuka said her son was recovering well.

“I’m glad that my son is alive so that he can continue his studies this year,” Mrs Tuilevuka said.

“He has some cuts and bruises in his arms, hands, knees and forehead but I encouraged him to be strong and believe that he will get well soon.”

She said she could not believe that her son was involved in the accident.

“I am so grateful to the officer for taking Josevata to the hospital.

“The doctors said that they will keep Josevata under observation at the hospital for a few days.”

She said her son was having nightmares in his sleep but was recovering well from a liquid diet.

Police spokesperson Inspector Josaia Weicavu said the 49-year-old businessman who was driving the private vehicle has not been charged.
