Fiji Sun - - Na­tion - JES­SICA GOUNDER

Car crash vic­tim Atu Roko­suka is happy to be alive. Mr Roko­suka, 23, who was ad­mit­ted in the In­ten­sive Care Unit be­cause of his crit­i­cal con­di­tion, is slowly re­cov­er­ing and has been shifted to the Acute Sur­gi­cal Ward at the Colo­nial War Me­mo­rial hospi­tal. The for­mer John Wes­ley stu­dent works at Fresh­pac Gin­ger (Fiji) Ltd in Lami and is a part-timer shoeshine boy. He was one of the four pas­sen­gers of the tragic car crash last Sun­day at Ratu Mara Rd where a rental car veered of the road and tum­bled down a cliff killing two pas­sen­gers. Mr Roko­suka said he did not re­mem­ber much of the morn­ing of the ac­ci­dent as he was un­con­scious at the time he was brought to the hospi­tal. “I just re­mem­ber get­ting into the car as we were head­ing to my friend’s place, and the last thing I re­mem­ber was my friend telling the driver to go slow,” Mr Roko­suka said.

Mean­while, 21-year-old Ki­tione Tukana was laid to rest yes­ter­day while Epeli Duaibe will be buried on Mon­day.
