Betty Kyallo has narrated how a near death experience toughened her up. This was after she recovered following a month and a half of hospitalization.
Betty then a 17 year old, got into a nasty accident that scarred her for life. Narrating her story the Churchill show, the mother of one said
‘WHEN I WAS 17 AND IN FORM THREE I HAD A DENTAL APPOINTMENT AND A DATE LATER, SO I SHOWERED AND OFF I WENT.
KUFIKA RAILWAYS AS I WAS CROSSING THE ROAD TOWARDS AFYA CENTRE I WAS HIT BY A MATATU.
IT DRAGGED ME UNDER IT,MY BLOUSE GOT HOOKED SO I WAS DRAGGED FOR A FEW INCHES.
I COULD SEE THE MATATU INCHES AWAY FROM CRUSHING MY FACE. IT WAS A NEAR DEATH EXPERIENCE AND IT CHANGED ME.’
Betty says the accident was a major one
‘MY LUNGS WERE CRUSHED,FOUR OF MY RIBS WERE BROKEN MY FACE WAS HALF SCARPED OFF,I BROKE MY BACK AND UP TO DATE I STILL HAVE BACK ISSUES.
AFTER BEING REMOVED UNDER THE MATATU,I COULD HEAR WOMEN SCREAM,THEY WERE SO EMOTIONAL AFTER SEEING MY STATE.
I WAS WHAT IF MY MUM SEES ME,WHAT WOULD SHE SAY IF SHE SAW ME?.
I WENT THROUGH 7/8 SURGERIES.
MY MUM WAS CALLED AND SHE CAME TO KNH AND AT THE TIME I WAS HEADING TO THE HDU. THAT TOUGHENED ME.’
‘I WANTED TO BE A JOURNALIST BUT MY SCARS WERE SO VISIBLE. MOST OF THE SCARS ARE NO LONGER VISIBLE EXCEPT THIS ONE ON MY NECK.
IT REMINDS ME THAT GOD LOVES ME.’
