"There was a wooden log left on the footpath. My husband tripped on it and fell down. As the area was poorly lit, we could not see the log," said RoviSangliana suffered injuries to his face and right hand during the fall. Rovi along with her neighbors rushed him to HOSMAT, where doctors performed an X-ray on the hand. The following day, it was found that Sangliana's wrist bone had suffered a fracture.Later, in a two-hour operation, Dr Thomas Chandy, Chairman of HOSMAT hospital, fixed Sangliana's bone through percutaneous pinning technology (used on sports persons for fast recovery). "The three pins have been placed by using steel wires. This is a non-invasive technique. After five weeks, the pins can be easily removed from outside. After six weeks, he will be put on physiotherapy," he said.  As TV channels pilloried the civic bodies over poor infrastructure, Mayor G Padmavathi rushed to the hospital and met the family."I met Sangaliana and family members. However, BBMP is not at fault as the area where the incident happened does not come under Palike's limit for maintenance of footpath and street light," she said.
