GEORGE NEWS - A former star in the police force and pillar of the George and Wilderness communities, Dolly Subramoney, escaped death after her cabin at the Cango Resort in the Swartberg mountains was razed to the ground on Sunday evening, 9 August.
Subramoney and two friends were on a weekend getaway when the incident occured.
"The fire may have been caused by a braai that wasn’t dead, and the severe wind that picked up in the night burnt down three of the cabins at the resort they were staying in along with my mom's friend's car. We are very thankful to management of the resort for evacuating the place and making sure that my mom and her friends are okay and taken care of," Subramoney's son, Delaney Subramoney-Cloete, said.
Subramoney, who had to undergo an operation due to the 40% burn wounds to her body, came out of theater this morning, Tuesday 11 August.
"She has been put into a medically induced coma and will go back into surgery on Thursday for doctors to do further assessment and to ensure good blood circulation. She is also on a ventilator to ensure that her swollen airways don't hamper her breathing.
"Please keep her in your thoughts and prayers," her son said.
