Default Canarian Weekly: ?Born-again? grandma survives a bus collision

SPANISH grandmother Adela, who has survived a fearful collision with a bus, believes she’s been granted a second life.

The 63-year-old, struck by the vehicle on a zebra-crossing in the Valencia town of Aldaia, was then dragged for a kilometre without the driver being aware of what had happened.

She fractured her pelvis and broke two ribs, as well as being bruised all over. But, miraculously, she survived.

The accident happened last Saturday at 7.30pm, as a storm gripped the town. Somehow, the belt of her coat became trapped between the two front wheels of the bus. But the street was empty of people because of the weather, so no one saw her being dragged along.

Adela recalled in hospital, before having an operation: “I was on a zebra-crossing, but the driver just did not see me. He ran me over and just kept going.”

She was dragged through the street before the bus stopped at a red light and a passenger heard her screams.

“I was wishing that someone would see me,” she added. “I just kept screaming. When they took me out from under the bus, the driver went white. Not even the police believed I had been dragged for such a long distance.

“The girl who raised the alarm stayed until the ambulance arrived and told me not to sleep; not to close my eyes.

“I ended up with my legs on my head, folded like a sandwich, which is how I broke my pelvis. But I feel I’m born again. I guess I was not supposed to die that day.”
