Girl hit by car dies on 9th birthday

By Staff

An Emirati girl who sustained serious injuries after she was knocked over by car in Khor Fakkan two weeks ago died on Sunday on her 9th birthday.

Aysha Al Riyasi had been in coma in a Fujeirah hospital since January 31 after suffering from serious wounds in the head during the accident.

Doctors said they could not save her because of a serious brain injury caused by the strong impact of the car hit.

“The news of Aysha’s accident had triggered prayers by many social network users…her death on her 9th birthday caused shocks and sadness among them yesterday,” Alkhaleej daily said.
