March 03, 2017

X-rays conducted on a senior who was trampled by students while trying to board a Jamaica Urban Transit Company bus in downtown Kingston recently showed no broken bones. However, torn muscles were identified.

Cynthia Tomlinson, 66, in a previous interview with THE STAR, said she saw death before her eyes last month after some unruly students knocked her to the ground.

Following her medical appointment, she said there were no broken bones, "but the muscles were torn and I got some antibiotics and (the doctors) say I suppose to take it so that no infection don't take it up because the muscle take time to heal".

Tomlinson told THE WEEKEND STAR that she is following her doctors' orders and giving thanks.

She said, "The doctors say I should stay quiet, don't overwork or do anything. Every now and again, the severe pain come back. I'm at home and still on the medication."

According to Tomlinson, several attempts to speak with the bus service operators have proven futile.

"I call them, but I don't get anyone. I leave my number and nobody has called back," she told THE WEEKEND STAR.

She also said that she has received an outpouring of support from the public, far and wide, who came across her story.
