A friend's 75+ year-old mother broke her hip the other day. Here's how.
She was at Solapur station, walking along the platform to catch a train. A young man suddenly leaped through a gap in the wall and ran across the platform, intent on catching his own train. He slammed right into my friend's mother. She fell on the platform and her hip broke.
She was in terrible pain. The person with her managed to get her into a car and took her to the hospital, but she says it was an excruciating nightmare. She is now at my friend's home in Bombay, recuperating.
And what of the young man?
He looked down at her, said "Sorry aunty" and rushed to catch his train.
