Share post:

SHE WILL NOT have to pay.

Barbadian-born, New York-based Kassim Hinds, whose teenaged son is in a coma and fighting for his life was relieved to hear yesterday that she would not have to fork out thousands of dollars in medical costs to the Queen Elizabeth Hospital (QEH).

Sixteen-year-old Ikhari Hinds-Lewis remains in the Intensive Care Unit undergoing treatment after he suffered a brain injury more than a week ago when he was struck by a car.

The family had arrived from New York on January 17 to attend the January 20 funeral of Ikhari’s grandmother. But tragedy struck soon after they reached the Checker Hall, St Lucy family home, when Ikhari was injured while on his skateboard.
