The family of a man who was involved in a collision with a bus in Foleshill, Coventry, have urged people to pray for a miracle after doctors informed them that the life support machine keeping him alive could be switched off today if he did not respond to further tests.
Waqas Hussain, 20, was left fighting for his life after suffering severe injuries in the collision on Wednesday at the junction of Edmund Road just before 2pm.
A spokesman for West Midlands Ambulance Service said at the time: “We were called at 1.55pm to reports of a bus in a collision with a pedestrian.
“When we got on scene, he was in a cardiac arrest.
“He was given CPR and advanced life support and they managed to successfully restart his heart again.
“He has been taken to University Hospital Coventry where he is in a critical condition.”
A young woman who was on the bus at the time wrote on Facebook: “I was on this bus with my mum and it was one of the worst things I’ve ever seen.
“I even had to sit on the floor because I felt so sick and was in shock. I really hope he’s okay.”
Family and friends of Mr Hussain have now urged people to pray for a miracle.
A number of friends and family have taken to Facebook saying that if Mr Hussain doesn’t respond to the latest round of treatment his life support machine will be switched off.
They have also shared an image of Mr Hussain in hospital.
On Facebook Tahira Khan wrote: “Please remember my cousin Waqas Hussain who is very critical.
“It doesn’t matter what doctors say but Allah can do anything – there is always a miracle. After your namaz do dua for Waqas that he wakes up in the morning with a new life.”
Kaashy Ali wrote: “The doctors have said they will do one last test and if he doesn’t respond they have no choice but to take the life support machine off.
“Please raise your hands and supplicate to Allah to grant him shifa.
“Please also share this post so others can make dua (prayers) for him too. The only thing that will benefit him right now is our supplication to Allah to heal him quickly.”
