Family injured entangled in SLA's concertina fence

[TamilNet, Saturday, 23 July 2005, 11:08 GMT]
Three members of a family including a baby were injured when they got entangled in a barbed wire erected by the Sri Lanka Army (SLA) along the Point Pedro Guest House Road Thursday night. The incident took place when several families were returning late in the night after attending an event where boats and nets were handed over to tsunami affected fishermen held at Supparmadam coastal area, sources said.

The injured were returning in a push bicycle and got entangled into the security fence when they attempted to give way for a motor vehicle from the opposite direction. All were admitted to Point Pedro hospital and later discharged after OPD treatment except the mother who had sustained severe injuries, civil sources said.

Civilian sources said the security fence at the location where the incident happened does not provide sufficient space for cyclists and pedestrians to travel .
