Shahreen Ahmed, a survivor of the US-Bangla plane crash in Nepal, has been released from Dhaka Medical College Hospital (DMCH).
She was given release letter, DMCH burn and plastic surgery unit’s Coordinator Dr Samanta Lal Sen said on Sunday.
Shahreen started for home accompanied by her mother Ferdousi Moshtaq, 24 days after undergoing treatment at the DMCH burn unit.
“It is a great achievement that I am able to return to normal life. Surviving (the plane crash) is obviously a gift. I saw three people get smashed before my eyes,” she told reporters at the DMCH.
Describing the crash aftermath situation in Nepal, Shahreen said: “I was alone in a hospital in Nepal for two days. Later, my brothers went there. Since my mental condition was not sound I could not behave well with many media. I apologise to them.”
She expressed her gratitude to her fellow citizens for their good wishes.
“Please pray for those of us who have returned as survivors so that we can lead normal lives again.”
She also thanked DMCH doctors for their efforts. “All of them have done a lot for me.”
Shahreen was brought to Dhaka from Kathmandu and admitted to DMCH on March 15. She suffered a fracture in one of her legs and burn injuries.
The US-Bangla plane crashed in Tribhuvan International Airport in Kathmandu with 67 passengers and four cabin crews on board on March 12.
Forty nine people, including 26 Bangladeshis, were killed in the crash. However, one of the 10 Bangladeshi injured in the crash, Shahin Bepari, died while undergoing treatment at the DMCH on March 26.
