FINALLY after three months, a road accident victim nurses had named “Unknown Tuesday” because no one knew his identity as he had been in a coma, was visited by his relatives yesterday after seeing his picture in the newspaper.
Nurses at the Port Moresby General Hospital who had been looking after Stanley Wayabe since he was admitted unconscious on Tuesday, July 14 following a road accident in Port Moresby, asked The National and other media outlets to publish a picture of him on his hospital bed two weeks ago to alert his relatives.
Yesterday his family members turned up at the hospital to identify him. His uncle Wilson John said they had been looking for him everywhere.
Relative Nelson Urai said they did not know about the road accident and were now praying for Wayabe to get better and be able to tell everyone what happened.
Urai thanked media outlets for publishing the picture of Wayabe in his hospital bed. He also thanked the nurses and doctors for taking care of him in the past three months.
Sister Dani Irepo said they were relieved when Wayabe’s relative arrived.
Nurses had been taking care of him, even buying diapers and other items, he needed.
