Mamadou Bah in ICU
Sheikh Jamal DC striker Mamadou Bah is still under observation at the intensive care unit (ICU) of the Anwar Khan Modern Hospital in Dhanmondi following a convulsive head injury he sustained during his side's Bangladesh Premier League match against Chittagong Abahani on Sunday night.
Bah, who came in place of Raphael Odoyin in the latter part of the match, sustained the injury while trying to race past Chittagong Abahani defender Sushanta Tripura. The Gambian striker tripped inside the penalty box and was subsequently struck by Sushanta's boot. He was immediately rushed off to a hospital with blood dripping off his head.
Bah was initially taken to Dhaka Medical College (DMC) Hospital before being shifted to the Anwar Khan Modern Hospital due to an unavailability of space at the DMC ICU, Sheikh Jamal's physiotherapist Saifuzzaman Chayan informed yesterday.
“He has been kept under observation for 48 hours at the ICU as the CT scan showed a haemorrhage inside the scalp,” Chayan said.
“However, the good news is he regained his consciousness after one-and-a-half hours following the injury. He was given four stitches on his forehead and has been kept under the observation of Dr. Kamrul Hasan,” Chayan continued.
Bah has scored four goals in the ongoing Bangladesh Premier League.
