He suffers a fractured neck and spine and has been sedated for the next 24 hours. Friends, I’m only messaging here cuz I know he’s been a great guy always to many many people and they deserve to pray for him at this time. Please hold Amit in your prayer all of you and let’s see him get up and out of this tragedy. We cannot do this alone. I’ve seen the power of collective prayer and now it’s our time to give him That support and strength that he needs to recover.
Please everyone hold him in your hearts and pray hard for your brother @amit Dookram, pray hard for mine.”
