She does not know son is dead
On Monday afternoon 25-year-old Lalita Rathod was waiting for her husband Chandu and two-year-old son Vijay to join her for lunch on the first floor when the building collapsed at Sahkarnagar. Lalita, who has been admitted to the orthopaedic ward of the Bharati Hospital in Dhankawadi was on Tuesday unaware that her two-year-old son Vijay is dead. Chandu cried bitterly over the loss of his son Vijay in the male surgical ward of Bharati Hospital.
Earning Rs 500 as daily wages for the construction work, the husband and wife had hoped to save enough before Diwali to buy new clothes for the family. As relatives and friends gathered around Lalita’s bed, she wailed, “What did we do to deserve this fate?”
Lalita, who has worked at several construction sites in the city with her husband and stays at Ambegaon Pathar in Haveli tahsil is reeling under the shock of the crash. “My eldest son who is three-and-a-half was sent earlier to Hyderabad to stay with my in-laws and start his schooling. I still have not met my husband and younger son after the crash,” she cried.
Chandu, admitted to the male surgical ward late at 10 pm, after he was rescued from under a slab where he had been trapped for more than seven hours, suffered chest and pelvic compression. The roof of his nose is damaged.
