15 year old girl named Selena Cojom was hit by a Transmetro bus near the intersection of 18th Street and 7th Avenue in Zone 1, Guatemala City. The impact stripped flesh clean off her right leg, leaving nothing but exposed bare bone. Doctors from Hospital General San Juan de Dios responded to the emergency quickly but there was nothing anyone could to do save her leg from amputation – which is not surprising seeing the extent of damage and the amount of blood loss.
The spokesman for the Municipality of Guatemala City – Carlos Sandoval said the driver of the bus is cooperating with authorities who are trying to determine why this grisly accident happened. Pedestrians are known to cut in front of public buses in the busy downtown area of the capital city without looking.
