Delhi Gang-Rape Victim Has 'Significant Brain Injury' and Is 'Fighting for Her Life'

The 23-year-old who was savagely raped and beaten with iron rods is at Mount Elizabeth Hospital in Singapore being treated. Dr. Kelvin Loh, the hospitals chief executive, released the following statement:

As at 28 Dec, 11am (Singapore time) the patient continues to remain in an extremely critical condition. She is still receiving treatment at Mount Elizabeth Hospital's Intensive Care Unit.

Our medical team's investigations upon her arrival at the hospital yesterday showed that in addition to her prior cardiac arrest, she also had infection of her lungs and abdomen, as well as significant brain injury. The patient is currently struggling against the odds, and fighting for her life.

A multi-disciplinary team of specialists has been working tirelessly to treat her since her arrival, and is doing everything possible to stabilise her condition over the next few days.

The High Commission of India has been fully supportive in helping the hospital and her family, and ensuring that the best care is made available.

I'm not a praying person but I am a bit of a cheeseball so maybe we can send all our healing thoughts and love to this young woman? Maybe that'll help? We'll keep you updated.

Update: She didn't make it. RIP.
