Two girls, severely injured in yesterday’s stampede in a Delhi school following a rumour of short-circuit, are still battling for their life, while the four others are out of danger, said reports.
“Usha (15) and Ruchi (12) are still in critical condition. They are under constant monitoring,” O P Kalra, Superintendent of Guru Teg Bahadur Hospital, where the victims are admitted, said.
It may be mentioned that in a stampede in the Government Senior Secondary School in north-east Delhi yesterday, five girls were killed and 34 other students injured, six of them critically.
Kalra said that the four other critically injured students, who had to be put on life support, are not out of danger.
Kalra said though the final autopsy report was awaited, initial reports suggested there were no injuries due to electrocution. Most probably, these children were trampled to death, he said, pointing out at injuries in the abdomen, chest and the arms.
