foto//friday . accident victims

While I was visiting a hospital in the far west region of Nepal the monsoon season started. With this massive amount of rain, roads that twist and turn up into the foothills of the Himalayas become susceptible to landslides, causing major traffic accidents. We got word that a landslide caused a bus accident about four hours north of Dadeldhura, and with this being the closest hospital, the victims were on their way. When the injured began arriving the sea of people would part for the victims to be taken into the waiting room set up for triage. Family members would do their best to try and get a glimpse of their loved ones awaiting treatment. This is just a small glimpse into a portion of one day (of the week) we spent at this rural hospital.
