Popular Kenyan actress Brenda Michelle, popularly known as Alma, has been re-admitted to hospital after surviving a horrific accident involving a cargo train.
According to her husband, renown gospel music producer Jacky B, Michelle’s condition worsened on Friday, May 14, with doctors referring them to another hospital for tests on her neck and chest area.
“Evening guys. Quick update on Michelle. Her condition was getting worse mainly shortness of breath, chest pains, vomiting with traces of blood and dizziness. We were referred to another hospital for tests on her neck and chest area. Thankyou for your love and emotional and financial support,” said Jacky B.
The couple was on Wednesday evening involved in an accident at a railway crossing. Reportedly, it was dark and raining heavily, and the train approached abruptly because it had no lights on.
As standard procedure, trains are required to sound their horns 15 to 20 seconds before entering all public grade crossings. But according to Jacky B’s account, the train did not sound the horn.
“If felt like a building fell on us. Very traumatic. Michelle was in the co driver seat so she was met with the most impact. I escaped with soft tissue injuries. Yesterday the injuries didn’t alarm us as much. She even passed by the house to pick a few items before going to the hospital,” says the music producer.
Tests run on Michelle
A few tests were ran on Michelle’s head and limbs as she was complaining of pain. Doctors, Jacky B says, said that it was tissue and muscle damage and they were released with medication.
The actress’ condition, however, deteriorated as she started complaining of chest pains, dizziness and nausea. Doctors are suspecting Thoracic trauma that was not attended to before.
