ONCE a hardworking income earner for his family, a man from Pontian, Johor, has been left bedridden after a fall that caused him severe head trauma, reported Kosmo!.

Housekeeper Mohd Nazli Khamis, 42, now has to rely on his 70-year-old father Khamis Mohd Dom and his sister Nadia Khamis, 46, to care for him.

According to Khamis, his son had a fall at home which caused such severe bleeding in his head that he had to undergo surgery to remove the blood clot.

Having once earned up to RM2,000 a month for his work, Mohd Nazli now sits in a near-paralysed state on his bed every day with a tube sticking out of his neck to help him breathe and eat.

“From being an active and fit person, he is now like a child who needs to be taken care of all the time.

“He is no longer able to speak because of the tube in his neck and can only drink special formula milk, which is expensive,” Khamis told the daily.
