Car wreck in Lagos Nigeria

Udenna and Ekene

Fatal abdominal injuries in a car accident

Udenna and Ekene died in a car wreck for lack of emergency care. Blunt abdominal trauma such as sports injuries and car wrecks can result in liver, spleen, kidney, and intestinal injuries which may not be initially evident but which can be eventually fatal and can be efficiently diagnosed in a competent emergency center.  Hospital urgent care and surgical facilities are far away or, if nearby, not available for the poor due to economic circumstances.
