Mum finds herself in a hole


Share post:

KESHA LAYNE, who fell into a manhole on Friday afternoon causing her ten-week-old daughter Rikeisha Layne to fall out of her hand, is dissatisfied with the treatment she received at the Queen Elizabeth Hospital (QEH) after she was rushed there with her “bawling” baby in an ambulance.
Layne, 32, of Deighton Road, St Michael, said she was on her way to Chefette on Black Rock Main Road with daughters and a friend, to celebrate one of her daughters’ birthday.
“I was walking and next minute my foot went down into this hole.
“People took me into a store and everybody was gathering around asking me all kind of questions and they called the ambulance.
Layne said the unexpected fall, left her with “some bruises on my foot and my knee and now when I bend my knee it hurts a lot.”
She voiced her concerns about the time it took her daughter to be examined after reaching the QEH.
“We got to the hospital before 2 p.m. but she [Rikeisha] was examined by a physician after 4 p.m.
Rikeisha was to have got a CAT scan, but that never came.
Layne wanted her child kept at the QEH for observation; but there wasn’t room.
Layne is seeking legal advice
