New Delhi: Two-year-old girl child Falak has
shown remarkable improvement in her medical condition with
doctors at AIIMS stating that she is "stable" and able to
breathe on her own.
The conclusion was arrived after they observed that Falak
has been without artificial respiration for the past three
days and has shown limb movement without any external stimuli.
"Her condition is stable. She is no more in a critical
state as she can now live without ventilator support. She is
fit to be shifted to the wards but we have decided to keep her
in the ICU least people throng to see her," said Dr Deepak
Agarwal, who has been attending on the girl child since she
was admitted to the AIIMS Trauma Centre on January 18.
Falak was brought to the hospital with severe head
injuries, broken arms, bite marks all over her body and cheeks
branded with hot iron.
"She is moving her limbs, she is opening her eyes. She is
no more the same as before. She has survived life saving
surgeries, mostly in the brain in the past 44 days. With the
nature of injury suffered in her brain, we cannot judge a
normal life for her in future. The superficial wounds have
healed, the marks are yet to go," he said.
Moved by Falak`s plight, Indians as well people from
the US and Canada have approached doctors, expressing their
desire to adopt her.
