While the hostile mother was beating the older child, I rescued the boy and asked the direction the car took and he pointed towards FMC.
When I got to the Government House Hospital, the CEO, Dr. Hobbot Preye confirmed the receipt of the patient but said, he has a damaged left leg and is referred to the Bayelsa State Diagnostics Center, Mgbi Road for femur X-ray. That, I should contact the parents to enable them extract the medical history to facilitate treatment on the boy.
Quickly, the contact was put to the father who happens to be a traditional bone doctor.
