Mangaluru, May 21: The head of the family in distress has breathed his last. The media had published the story of Srinivas (38) on Wednesday May 20th.
The deceased is Srinivas from Kakkebettu, Kalpane. Srinivas breathed his last on Wednesday at Wenlock hospital where he was being treated. Srinivas was paralysed since some time.
The family of five Srinivas, his aged mother, wife Mallika and two little boys aged 6 and 4 were in great misery in the recent past. Srinivas was the sole breadwinner of the family. His mother is too old, Wife is in critical condition in hospital and children are in the rehabilitation centre.
The two little boys looked after their sick parents and grandmother for three days until they were rescued by Childline on Tuesday, May 19th.
The little children cared for the elders with whatever was available for three days without any help.
Soon after the news was published, media had received a lot of messages, mails and phones with a request to help the family. But as Srinivas and Mallika were in critical conditions, communication could not be established with them.
The two little boys were brought to the hospital to see their parents on Wednesday. But as the father was unconscious, he could not see them. But the children who watched the pains of their father cried without knowing what to do. Then the children were taken to see their mother who also could not respond.
Later, the two kids were taken back to the rehabilitation centre where they are presently looked after. But after three hours of this incident, it was learnt that Srinivas breathed his last in the evening.
