Monrovia - The Liberian Media landscape has been dealt another blow just a day following the gruesome murder of Journalist Tryon Browne of Super FM.
This time it is the untimely death of the former President of the Press Union of Liberia, Mr. Kamara A. Kamara, who was affectionately known among his media colleagues as KAK.
It is reported by the Medical Doctor, who was on call when he (KAK) was rushed to the Phebe Hospital by 1 a. m. Tuesday, April 17, that he was brought in "unconscious."
Dr. Arthur Jones Wuoh, a General Practitioner, assigned at that hospital in Suacoco, Bong County, said they had done all to revive him; adding: "Sadly, he didn't come to. Our sympathy to the bereaved family and the Liberian Media Community."
Dr. Wuoh also told this newspaper that when KAK was rushed in, he (Wuoh) was presented with his history that he was found in his hotel room unconscious having seizures and oozing blood and foam from his mouth.
"When we checked his level of consciousness on the Glasgow Coma Scale (GCS), we found that his was at the lowest: 3/15. Every normal person is 15/15," he explained. He also disclosed that they had noticed that "he had suffered from injury on the brain."
According to him, reviving any patient at that lowest level is not impossible in science but just very hard.
Another Medical Doctor also assigned at Phebe, Dr. Joseph Vanyanbah, too, told this newspaper that he had been informed that KAK had developed Cardiovascular or Cerebrovascular Accident (CD/VA), "meaning he came down with stroke."
