Unconscious

Upon reaching the hospital, he found the young man unconscious, and all tests by the medics came out negative.

“One of the doctors called me aside and told me that they needed to do a CT scan, but the facility did not have that capacity so I should transfer him,” he continued.

It is while they were taking Tom to West Kenya Hospital that he lost his life, but initial tests at the hospital indicated he had traces of blood in the brain.
