Ayesha Omar breaks silence after traumatic car accident

Ayesha Omar breaks silence after traumatic car accident

"My next few thoughts were a mixture of extreme terror of being kidnapped or mugged by dacoits on the highway."
21 Dec, 2015

Pictures of a wrecked car on the highway started circulating on social media a few days ago.

Fans were shocked when they learnt that it was Ayesha Omar and Azfar Rehman who had been in that car and gotten into a road accident.

Ayesha and Azfar were accompanied by host/actor Anoushey Ashraf and model Abbas Jafri on this trip, but were travelling in a separate car. A driver was behind the wheel.

The actress has now finally decided to break the silence after the traumatic incident on her Facebook profile.

She starts off by sharing that her right arm is "immobile" and she had to type this account with her left hand so "this will take a while."

The Bulbulay star gave an update on her injuries: "As you all must know, I've broken my right collar bone and fractured my right shoulder. The last three days have been excruciatingly painful and i got no sleep the first 2 nights despite a mixture of heavy painkillers and sedatives. Finally got a few hours last night and I'm back home from the hospital. "

She goes on to recount the collision.

"I didn't lose consciousness at the time of the accident despite being in agonising pain and my first thought was of gratitude. I was shocked and grateful to be alive and wanted to be out of the car as soon as possible but was not allowing anyone to touch me because I knew I had broken something in my shoulder and didn't want to be mishandled."

"We hit an overtaking truck on the highway just before Hyderabad and had two collisions due to being bumped into by another truck from the back. It's a miracle that me and Azfar came out alive because the car was completely destroyed. I was immobile and picked up by Azfar and a group of passersby and put into a police mobile that transported us to a rundown govt clinic in Jamshoro."

She adds, "My next few thoughts were a mixture of extreme terror of being kidnapped or mugged by dacoits on the highway taking advantage of our vulnerable situation and of thousands of little kids strewn on the ground after various explosions in the world, with no one to help them and give them any medical help."

Omar expressed her gratitude to her friend and colleague, Azfar being around to take charge of the situation, despite being injured himself.

"Luckily Azfar was in complete control despite sustaining a minor head injury and it was him who took care of me for the next 3 hours in Jamshoro and during the excruciating, bumpy and never-ending 4 hour drive alone in an ambulance back to Khi. If it wasn't for him, I wouldn't have made it back safely and God knows how I would've been handled."

"Those 6 hours were the toughest few hours of my life and Azfar Rehman protected and cared for me like I was his own child. God bless him a hundred times over and may everyone have friends like him in their lives. He's proved to be the most amazing friend and care-taker ever. He helped me endure my pain, deal with the trauma and panic, kept wiping my unstoppable tears, and kept me hydrated till we reached Khi. From there on, it was just x-rays and painkillers."

The Karachi Se Lahore leading lady will be taking a break from her hectic schedule: "I'm in too much pain, too exhausted and weak to pick up the phone and talk all the time but will be able to do so and meet people from day after. Recovery time is 6-8 weeks and I'll be home bound mostly. A much-needed break from my crazy lifestyle. Just wanted to share my experience and thank you all for the boundless love and wishes."

We wish both the stars a speedy recovery!

the first advice that my father gave me when teaching me how to drive, "think thrice when overtaking a truck or a bus."

Alhamdolillah you are both safe & on the way to recovery. I can empathise with you Ayesha because my son & husband were looted & nearly kidnapped on our way back from Hyderabad after they had a flat tyre. We were coming back from my son's nikah and were in separate cars and got separated when we stopped at a fuel station on the highway. It was a very traumatic experience fr us too. Stay safe. Stay blessed. Speedy recovery for you.

Alhamdolillah you are alive and on your way to recovery. Incidents like these make us realize our mortality. Maybe as a celebrity you should raise awareness about the run down clinics at the highway. With so many accidents happening there should be a decent clinic there.

One should be thankful to local people and medical staff . Just keep in mind with limited resources I think they did there best. These accident are one way telling people now it's there turn to do something for future accident victim.
