An online fundraising campaign, to help a Manchester woman who sustained serious injuries after falling from the fifth floor balcony of her Kenyan fiancé’s home to pay her huge medical bill, has only managed to raise £220 of its £25,000 target in one month.
25-year-old Tinu Collins, from Moss Side, says she slipped and fell from the balcony following an argument with her partner, Bradley Juma Obomi – popularly known as Trap King Chrome, who lives in Lavington.
Tinu broke her left leg, right ankle, pelvis and spine in the fall, at around 11pm on June 12, but somehow survived.
Her mother had flown over from Manchester to be at her bedside and a month after the incident, she was in Nairobi Hospital, unable to pay her medical bill as she had travelled to the country without taking out insurance.
Speaking about the situation, Bradley said: “The hospital bill is already £17,000 and I don’t know how we’re going to pay for it. Basically she won’t be allowed out of the hospital unless she can pay up – or at least pay a deposit. We’re stuck.”
He added that the hospital only agreed to treat her because she was in a critical condition at first and has denied reports in Kenyan media that he pushed her but confirmed he had spoken to police.
