Caloocan stray bullet victim improving
MANILA – The condition of the high school graduating student who was hit by a stray bullet in Caloocan City last month is now getting better.
According to a report of radio dzMM, the wound in John Kurt Galang’s head has already healed. Galang has been confined at the East Avenue Medical Center for 12 days now.
Galang’s mother Marivic said her son will undergo another CT scan in two weeks to determine if part of his brain is still swelling or if there’s still any blood clot.
Marivic added her son is now able to walk without feeling dizzy and has also started eating solid food since Tuesday. Furthermore, Marivic said her son can now speak spontaneously.
Meanwhile, Galang’s doctor said they will try to do their best to restore the patient’s vision in his left eye.
Marivic continues to appeal for help for her son's medical expenses.
The stray bullet incident occurred even as authorities have yet to resolve the case of 7-year-old Stephanie Nicole Ella.
Ella died on New Year's Eve after she was shot in the head while watching fireworks display outside their house in Barangay Malaria. – report from Dexter Ganibe, dzMM
