Waiting and hoping
Little Sharleen Chand is hoping her talented big sister comes home from hospital soon so she can teach her to dance.
Sheetal Chand came out of an induced coma on Wednesday afternoon after being hit by a bus on Tuesday morning at the intersection of Barrack and Penrose roads in Mt Wellington.
The 15-year-old Auckland Girls Grammar student had been walking to the bus-stop where she caught the bus to school every morning. She is believed to have been crossing Penrose Rd when she was hit.
Speaking from Auckland Hospital yesterday morning, her father Rakesh Chand said she was still on life support and starting to show improvement.
“They’re just monitoring her and taking it each step at a time. She’s not getting any worse. That’s the main thing.”
