What I am about to share is extremely important for your own safety as well as of those riding with you.
A while ago I was coming back from Jinnah Super, was entering the Centaurus flyover's underpass, on the Expressway. Around 200 metres ahead of us were a girl and boy riding on a 70, who later turned out to be siblings, there was no other car or bike in that stretch at that time.
What we saw next was shocking. All of a sudden the bike went towards the pavement, slammed into it and we saw the two people rolling on the road in the left-most lane. I was travelling with my friend, we immediately stopped our car to see them. My friend went towards the passengers while I picked their bike up and parked it at the side.
A terrible tragedy had happened, the girl was severely injured, her head had hit the pavement hard and she was barely moving. We quickly reversed our car near her and along with the help of some other bikers, who had also stopped after us, put her on the back seat and told the boys to come to PIMS.
We drove the car as fast as possible and reached PIMS in a very short time. I quickly grabbed the stretcher and when I opened the rear door, I was stunned. The girl was almost unconscious to such a level that I became shocked because of the fear that these might not be her last breaths.
We got her in the Emergency Ward and some nurses immediately rushed to her, who after a while shifted her to another ward where she was being given a glucose grip and in a while a doctor came who along with a nurse started examining her and applying the stitches, the poor girl was screaming badly out of sheer pain, I got out of the ward as I cannot see human blood, I start losing my senses.
In the meanwhile her brother had also reached, he had injuries but minor ones. After a good 20 minutes we forcibly got him to the doctor so that he gets treated too, all that was on his mind was his sister. Poor boy was too much tensed and we did our best to console him and assured him that we were there until situation gets normal.
As it was well beyond 11 p.m., all of the people in position of authority I know in PIMS were not answering their phones, I was trying this so that they could get quality treatment.
Then some men of their family came, they thanked us a lot including the boy himself and then we left the place but I got the phone number and address of that boy, will go in a few days In Shaa Allah to inquire about their health.
The cause of the crash was the girl's dupatta which somehow got stuck in the rear wheel and bike went out of control and slammed in the pavement.
What I want to emphasize from the above incident that dear bikers please ride carefully and instruct everyone else to do so as well. Plus ask your rear passenger, whether a man or a woman, to take extreme care of their clothes, and it seems awkward but both passengers should wear a helmet. Had that girl worn a helmet she would not have received a head injury which could have proved fatal for her.
