Man rides motorcycle into the sea

A man was admitted to Indira Gandhi Memorial Hospital (IGMH) in a critical condition on Tuesday after crashing his motorcycle into the sea, reports Haveeru.

Abdulla Muaz (21), of Jawaahirumaage/Laamu Fonadhoo, suffered severe head injuries after he skidded off the causeway onto rocks between Laamu atoll Maandhoo and Kadhdoo. His passenger suffered cuts and bruises but was otherwise unharmed.

His father, Mohamed Jameel, told Haveeru that his son was still unconcious and doctors had intially put his chance of recovery at less than 40 per cent.

“However later they said that his condition seemed to be stabilising,” Jameel said.
