MUMBAI: A schoolboy, Kushal Bheda (13), who had climbed on the rooftop of a stationary train, suffered 75% burns and is battling for life. His father said he had climbed atop the coach to click photographs. The incident occurred at the railway yard near Ram Mandir station on Sunday. Bheda, a class IX student, had gone near the yard to play cricket, said his family. "Kushal has been singed badly. We hope he recovers," said his father, Manish, who runs a confectionary store in Malwani. Kushal lives with his father and younger sister in Malad.Kushal's relatives said he left home around 11am. "We assumed he would play nearby. There was a group of four to five youngsters with him," said his aunt. Around 3.15pm, when Manish came home for lunch, he got a call from the cops. "They said my son was critical and asked me to rush to Ram Mandir...
station. His friends were there but were scared to talk about what had happened," Manish said. Kushal was rushed to Siddharth Hospital in Goregaon and then to the SRV Hospital in the same locality. But as his injuries were very serious, doctors recommended he be shifted to a specialty hospital. The family moved him to KEM Hospital. On Monday, he was moved to Kasturba Hospital at Chinchpokli. Manish told TOI he had learnt from Kushal's friends that the group veered to the yard after playing cricket. "My son climbed the coach to take photographs. He lost his balance and grabbed an overhead equipment wire. It was a high voltage wire," he said, adding that the friends heard a loud sound but were terrified to rescue him. GRP personnel at Ram Mandir station were informed around 3pm. They called the porters, who brought an unconscious Kushal out. At the hospital, the GRP recorded Manish's statement.
