Derebail accident, 16-year-old Nikitha Cutinha Succumbs to Injuries

Mangaluru: 16-year-old Nikitha Cutinha breathed her last on April 9, at around 9:30 am after she was admitted in the ICU at AJ Hospital, being knocked down by a speeding car near Derebail Church while she was on her way to the grocery on March 25.

Recalling the incident, it was an ill-fated day of March 25, 2018 for innocent Nikitha who was walking on the footpath on her way to a grocery store, was knocked down by a car with “L” sticker driven by a lady, when she drove close to the footpath, thereby resulting in severe head injuries to Nikitha, who was quickly rushed to AJ Hospital by a motorist passing that way. Nikitha was still in ICU fighting for her life. Her mother, Noreen ‘Cutinha’ Crasta who is employed as staff nurse at AJ Hospital ICU section, while her dad, Jerome Cutinha employed in Gulf, has come down now-Nikitha is their only daughter.

Speaking to Team Mangalorean a few days ago with tears in her eyes, Nikitha’s mother Noreen ‘Cutinha’ Crasta had said, “I and my husband are totally devastated. She is our only precious daughter, who is so smart and active in various academics and co-curricular activities. This tragedy shouldn’t have stuck her at this tender age. My humble request to all the motorists to think about themselves, their family members at home and also other citizens when they are behind the wheel, and not to drive/ride recklessly putting others lives in harm. I wish that no other parents have to go through what we are experiencing right now, due to the carelessness of a driver, which has put our innocent daughter in pain”.

May Her Soul Rest In Peace!

The funeral will be held at the Manela Church on Tuesday, 10 April 2018 at 10:30 am. The mortal remains will be brought to Derebail Church at 7:00 am followed by requiem mass at 7:15 a.m. At 8:00 am the body will be taken to Christ the King Church, Manela, Punacha, Bantwal.
