Girl Fractures Hip, Scores 92.5%
Mumbai: A simple game of hide and seek landed IIT-Powai’s Kendriya Vidyalaya student Aiman Aslam in hospital, in the middle of board exams. Aslam fell in a 15ft ditch and suffered multiple fractures on her right hip. The incident took place after her social studies paper, five days before the next exam. She scored 92.5%. “Two more papers were left and I had to study in the hospital. However, I was determined not to miss my exams and score a good grade,” Aslam told TOI. She was taken to the nearest school from her hospital in an ambulance, where she wrote her exams in a reclining wheelchair. Aiman hopes to pursue ethology at a city college.
