However, the next day, she began vomiting and shivering. “We immediately rushed her to a private hospital. She had suffered an injury on her neck, and her leg was swollen. The scan report revealed a blood clot in her head. She is undergoing treatment. She is suffering for no fault of hers,” she said.
