De Sinco owner Frank De Abreu, who was involved in an accident with a fire tender almost two weeks ago, was yesterday flown to New York for admission to a hospital there for medical care.
De Abreu showed little sign of improvement while he was a patient of the Intensive Care Unit (ICU) of the Georgetown Hospital, a source from the hospital said yesterday.
He was flown out of the country yesterday afternoon.
De Abreu’s transfer had been sought by his relatives since the accident, but they were unable to move him because he was not in a condition to be flown.
His condition remained the same after his vehicle was struck by the fire tender at the corner of Lamaha and Irving streets two Sundays ago.
Four firemen were also injured in the accident, which saw the fire tender ending up in a trench.
Injured were firemen Marlon Wilson, 42, who sustained injuries to the head, neck and face; Jamal Alleyne, 23, who suffered wounds to his right hand and ear; Hurdley Holder who was hurt to his head, left hand and eye and Kwesi Pearson. Holder was the last member of the quartet to be discharged. This newspaper was reliably informed that the man lost one of his eyes and that his hand was broken.
