The 20-year-old porter from Grand Baie was arrested.

In his statement, the young porter explained that he was driving a buggy in the courtyard of the hotel when the receptionist, who lives in Trois Boutiques, Triolet, asked him for a lift to the main entrance. She was going there to join her husband, who had brought her some bread. On the way, says the buggy’s young driver, the receptionist jumped out of the moving vehicle without informing him. Immediately he stopped the vehicle to assist the young woman, who was bleeding from the mouth and head.

She was rushed to the northern hospital for hotel staff. After receiving treatment, she was admitted to the intensive care unit ward. Her condition is considered serious. The young porter was given an alcohol test, which proved negative.

He was kept in a police cell.  He has retained the services of Me Assad Rujub.
