A seven-year-old boy who survived a car accident last Friday in Tuatua, Labasa, has been discharged from the Labasa Hospital.

Natuti Kaibao, who now rests in the comfort of his home, was crossing the road with his mother, Bautini Saurogo when he was allegedly hit by a car.

The Year two student at Banaban Primary School in Rabi had spent his holidays with his father, Kaibao Barau, who works for Shield Security.

Divisional Police Commander (DPC) Northern Senior Superintendent of Police (SSP) Eparama Waqa confirmed that a seven-year-old boy was rushed to the Labasa Hospital after the accident for treatment.

He also confirmed that the boy was discharged from hospital yesterday. Police investigations are continuing.

Barau said both the mother and son were doing grocery shopping at Suntex Supermarket prior to the accident.

“After receiving the call from my wife, I rushed to the hospital,” Mr Barau said.

“I never expected that this would happen to my son, but I’m praying that he gets well soon.”
