A city doctor, whose identity we will conceal has exclusively told Kiss100.co.ke what happened at the accident scene where John De Mathew perished. The accident occurred at Blue Post on Sunday night.
WAS DRIVING FROM BEHIND BUT UPON REACHING THE ACCIDENT SCENE I STOPPED AFTER A MAN WHO WAS STANDING NEXT TO A SMALL CAR AND A LORRY WAVED AT ME.
I HELPED HIM STOP THE VEHICLES WHICH WERE COMING FROM BEHIND WHILE HE REMOVED THE SINGER FROM THE CAR. THE DRIVER OF THE TRAILER DE MATHEW HAD HIT FROM BEHIND WAS STILL IN THE TRAILER CLUELESS ON WHAT TO DO. MOST MOTORISTS REFUSED TO STOP THINKING IT WAS THUGS STOPPING THEM.
The good Samaritan identified himself as Peter and he informed the doctor that he had unsuccessfully been trying to wave down cars for help removing John De Mathew’s from his car.
He was surprised by the callous nature of Kenyan motorists who all sped off:
OUR ATTITUDE AS KENYANS IS BAD. WE’RE SUPPOSED TO BE THE FIRST, FIRST AID GIVERS.
John De Mathew was also apparently still alive after the accident and perhaps he would have survived had help arrived sooner.
HE WASN’T TALKING BUT WAS BREATHING. HIS LEGS WERE STILL ON THE BRAKE PEDDLE AND UPPER BODY BETWEEN THE TWO FRONT SEATS. HE WAS BLEEDING FROM THE FOREHEAD AND DIDN’T UTTER A WORD. HIS EYES WERE CLOSED,’ HE EXPLAINED.
PETER IS The one who called the police
AFTER REMOVING HIM FROM THE WRECKAGE PEOPLE WERE NOT WILLING TO TAKE HIM TO HOSPITAL. NO ONE WANTED TO OFFER HIM A LIFT TO HOSPITAL. WE HAD TO USE A MATATU, WHICH HAD NO PASSENGERS TO FERRY HIM TO HOSPITAL.
John De Mathew was pronounced dead when he arrived at the hospital.
