Road mishap leaves one in critical condition


Oct 27: One resettled Bhutanese in Kent in Washington has met severe accident today morning at around 6.30 am local time.  

According to Shyam Poudel, Narbada Timsina, 20, was hit by a heavy truck while she was trying to cross the street to board the public bus to reach her work place.

Yub Dabadi from Washington quoted father of the victim, Moti Khar Timsina as reporting that operation for one of the intestines was done after bruises were noticed.  

Narbada, who was immediately rushed to the Harborview Hospital located in the Down Town Seatle after the incident, is also diagnosed to have fractured her right leg below knee.

According to doctors at the hospital, the condition of the victim is critical and yet they suspect more affect on her intestine, whose confirmation is still sketchy.

Police investigation is reported to be underway.

Timsina family, formerly from Beldangi-I camp in Sector A/3-248, moved to USA under third country resettlement program last year.

  1. My prayers for fast full recovery to the victim.

    Bhutan News Service, Suggestion to you, Would you please mention BHUTAN instead of refugee camp or may be both, but Bhutan may sound more appropriate when you publish the news in any scenario regarding resettled Bhutanese. I hope it makes sense to you.
