Almost six weeks after being rushed to the Georgetown Public Hospital (GPH) with a broken leg, a man is yet to have corrective surgery to the limb.

The life of Charles Flavius changed on November 28, 2018 after he was involved in a motorcycle accident along the East Bank Demerara roadway. Flavius, a father of three, suffered injuries to his right leg, just above his ankle. He was rushed immediately to the GPH and taken into the emergency area.
