Burns, maggots, blood loss: Bhoigudas unknown survivor fights for life

The Bhoiguda fire accident of 23 March took the lives of 11 migrant workers and left two survivors. While one of the survivors, Prem Kumar, is still in the hospital, the second survivor is an 11-year-old dog.The dog escaped the accident and was rescued by the Greater Hyderabad Municipality Corporation (GHMC) a day after the accident. Deputy director of GHMC Animal Birth Control (ABC) Sadguna assessed the animal's condition and said the dog had suffered burns near its legs. However, she said that the dog required further special treatment that is not available at the ABC centre. "Apart from the burns, the dog also had a very deep maggot wound and blood loss," she added. A few days after the dog started receiving treatment, a group of volunteers reached out to the GHMC and showed an interest in taking care of the dog. Vivek, Gowtham, and Vineela are the volunteers who are looking after the injured animal. The dog is currently staying in Vineela's house. The volunteers mostly depend on NGO funds for treatment.
