Ambulance driver, nurse die in floods after saving patient

23 November 2015, 16:40 Joseph Njung'eh

Nairobi - An ambulance driver and a nurse perished over the weekend after the vehicle was washed away by floods at Doldol area in Laikipia North constituency.

The two were on their way from Nanyuki Referral Hospital where they had taken a pregnant woman who developed complications while delivering at Doldol District Hospital.

The vehicle, which belongs to Laikipia County Government, was washed away for more than 400 metres away from the main road by the run- off river.

‘‘They attempted to cross River Loisokut which was flooded. We just discovered a piece of cloth near the scene but we are yet to discover the bodies,’’ said the County executive secretary in charge of health Njoroge Wangui.

He said the two had crossed the river but got stuck in the mud at the bank of the river before they were washed away.

‘‘They asked for help. They perished while waiting to be evacuated,’’ he added.

The incident occurred at the same spot where another woman was washed away while grazing her animals one week ago.

The body of the woman is also yet to be recovered.

Kenya Red cross Society officer, Anthony Kuria, said a search team was yet to recover the bodies despite covering more than 50 kilometres downstream heading to Isiolo County.

The search team, Kuria said, was receiving aerial support from a helicopter.
