Woodley Park girl still unconscious two weeks after accident 

Two weeks after five-year-old Tiffany Seepersaud was struck down on the Woodley Park, West Coast Berbice road she has still not regained consciousness.

And although she has been hooked up to a life-saving machine, her father, Tulsiram ‘Bryan’ Seepersaud, 35, is not giving up hope on her survival.

He is aware that the machine is keeping her alive and said he cannot bear the thought of the hospital removing it.

Seepersaud, a cane harvester told Stabroek News that ever since the accident he has been praying for her recovery.

Two head scans showed that she suffered severe injuries. He also learnt that the child’s brain has blood clots and that doctors are unable to perform surgery.

Tiffany was returning home from the Woodley Park Nursery on January 6, the first day of school when she ran across the road and into the path of a moving car.

She was struck in the middle of the road and landed on the bonnet of the car before being flung a good distance away.

The driver of the car assisted in taking her to the Fort Wellington Hospital. She was treated and immediately transferred to the Georgetown Public Hospital.

Seepersaud said he is disappointed that neither the police nor relatives of the driver have visited the child. He said he checked with the police at Fort Wellington and was told that the driver and the car were released.

Police told him that they learnt that the child has recovered and was “walking. They din come and see she, how dem know she walking,” the distressed father questioned.

He was also told that the driver was admitted to the hospital following the accident and was treated for “high pressure and sugar.”

Seepersaud and his wife, Mala have three older children, ages 12, 10 and seven and said Tiffany  was their “pet” and it is very hard to see her in that condition.
