Kolkata: Asian Games gold medalist Pinki
Pramanik, who was injured in a road accident near Purulia, was
today shifted to city-based B R Singh Hospital.
According to coach of the West Bengal Athletic
Association Ashish Sengupta, Pinki`s condition was out of
danger as the athlete was able to move today.
But the condition of her father, Durgacharan Pramanik, is
still "very critical" and is being treated at the Tata Main
Hospital in Jamshedpur.
"She has sustained deep cuts on her forehead, eyebrow,
jaw and knees, for which she underwent stitches. She had a
light walk today and her condition is not dangerous. She has
been admitted at the Intensive Therapy Unit," Sengupta said.
"But she is having terrible back pain. X-ray would be
done tomorrow and doctors would tell us the exact status. But
from my assessment she should be able to take the field within
a couple of months," he added.
