NIGERIAN-BORN DOCTOR IN COMA AFTER BEING HIT BY LORRY IN UNITED STATES

A Nigerian-born doctor, Sebastian Kola-Bankole, who works in the UK is in a coma after being struck by a lorry in the US where he had gone to attend a friend’s wedding.

In a report by Standard, Dr Bankole, an NHS doctor, had flown out to Los Angeles for a friend’s wedding but was knocked down by a lorry as he crossed a road off the Sunset Strip in Las Vegas on February 15.kola

It is believed that he was hit outside the Hard Rock Hotel and Casino.

The report said the 35-year-old doctor is critically injured in the road accident, and his friends, and relations have launched a £250,000 appeal for treatment, and to take him back to the UK.

It was said that the fundraising became necessary following mounting medical bills and Dr. Bankole’s failure to take out travel insurance.

His friends, many of whom are doctors, are reportedly looking for a suitable hospital in London that will agree to take him.

The report has it that Dr. Sebastian Kola-Bankole graduated from University College London in 2008.
