LAHORE: Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) chairman Imran Khan suffered injuries as he fell off a lifter while being raised onto a stage, Express News reported on Tuesday. The election rally was being held in Gulberg, near Ghalib market.

A few hours after the fall, Imran reportedly announced that planned rallies will be held as per schedule, but the party later announced that all events scheduled for Tuesday and Wednesday were cancelled.

According to the head of Shaukat Khanum Dr Faisal, the PTI chairman had suffered from head injury but was in his senses and recognising everyone though a report will be issued after detailed tests, PTI’s official twitter account confirmed.

CT scans revealed that he had suffered minor fractures in the skull.

However, Imran was not immediately rushed to the hospital he had helped built. He was first taken to Jinnah Hospital to receive first aid. Doctors there comforted Imran’s supporters and well-wishers, asking them to stay calm as the PTI chairman was out of danger.

“His [Imran] head suffered two injuries and there was one back injury,” Doctor Shafiq told Express News adding that the PTI chairman had also received stitches. “He was fully conscious and could move his legs and feet which is a good sign. There was no neurological damage.”

“It is an external injury only but Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) and further x-rays will confirm this.”

Doctors of Shaukat Khanum Memorial Cancer Hospital (SKMCH) after medically examining Imran, adviced him to take two weeks of bed rest.

Briefing the mdedia, Dr Faisal Sultan of SKMCH said that the condition of the PTI chief was quite stable but he will remain in the hospital overnight.

Message from hospital

Later in a video message from his hospital bed, Imran urged his supporters to get out on May 11 and vote for his party.

With a stitched wound above his left eye and brace around his neck, Imran said he had done what he could.  ”Now I want you to take responsibility. If you want to change your desitny, I want you to take responsibility.”

In the two minute long video, he said that he has not done any favours on anyone and it was his duty to do what he did. But that if people wanted to change the way the country works, they will have to go out and vote on May 11.

“Do not look at the candidate but look at the vision and the party ticket.

14 foot fall

Imran along with three security guards was being raised onto a 20 foot tall stage via lifter.

Standing on a wooden platform, Imran was gripped by his guards. Midway another of his security guards tried to climb aboard the platform. This made the platform unbalanced and caused the five to tip over, somersault through the air and land on the roof of the lifter before falling on to the ground.

“He [Imran] first fell on to the roof of the lifter, and then fell to the ground,” the driver of the vehicle said.

As a result of the fall, the PTI Chairman received a head injury. He was seen bleeding, in a semi-conscious state as he was rushed away from the site of the accident.

The three security personnel were also injured as the group fell off the lifter.

Imran was initially transported to Jinnah hospital and was later shifted to Shaukat Khanum hospital, heavily strapped and with his head covered in bandages and his neck in a head brace.

“Imran Khan is alright. He has been taken to the hospital for first aid. He will be back to address the rally very soon after getting initial treatment,” PTI spokesperson Chaudhry Rizwan told AFP via telephone shortly after the incident.

Shortly after, a number of PTI members confirmed that Imran was conscious and out of danger including singer Abrarul Haq PTI Chairman and his ex-wife Jemima Khan.

Imran was supposed to address nine rallies in total today, from Ghalib stadium he was headed to Raiwind for a rally and then back again to Lahore.

The Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) chief in his rally in Rawalpindi called for prayers for the swift recovery of Imran Khan and cancelled its events planned for Wednesday. The Muttahida  Qaumi Movement (MQM) cancelled its election events scheduled for Tuesday.

The President, Chief Election Commissioner, PML-N chief Nawaz Sharif, Tahirul Qadri, Shahbaz Sharif and the Muttahida Qaumi Movement (MQM) have all expressed their sympathy over Imran’s injury and prayed for his swift recovery.

    Totally agree with you on this mate … that might be the reason he is honest in a society common with corruption and nepotism. I do have reservations on his policy regarding talks with criminals but liberal parties couldn’t eradicate this problem and since it’s PML(N) vs PTI then the only choice we’re left in current lot is PTI who’s leader is manifold better than those leaders who would talk rubbish to fool the masses and would consider building roads prosperity just so that they get to No 1 on the richest person’s list of Pakistan.
    We need real progress which involves change in education system, justice system, population control, electricity shortage and corruption reduction among a dozen other problems. Clearly top two parties didn’t bother to care for millions of people who were suffering in scorching heat without even a fan on their head from past two decades and did not bother to address these issues.

Then there were the 3 security guards who were holding each other and Imran (as if they were standing with their leader on ground), one of the security man lost his balance as the other pulled one of his leg by mistake while trying to get on the lifter and down went all 4 of them hugging each other. Wish all 4 men a quick recovery.

    Thank God, Imran Khan is conscious. However there is no news on those who fell with him, they are just as important as him. Secondly why would you come down up on a forklift, when there were stairs. If looked like they were to create some amazing stunt, that went horribly wrong, and that it would look super cool and modern. Who would come up on a fork lift? Why? and 5 people on 1 lift. All the pro PTI news agencies are calling it a standard lift, knowing full well how stupid it is to come up on a forklift. If he wins the elections with a sympathy vote, for his own parties pathetic organization , then that would be unfair on those from other parties, who aren’t corrupt and have invested lots of money on standing elections. Also PTI bandwagon is lying that he was unconscious till he went to hospital. He was conscious on the stretcher, before he was taken away in an ambulance.

    Shahsawar is still a tifl in politics and he has much to learn, but the common man is mesmerized by this simpleton. I do wish him good health and I also pray that he becomes the next PM of Pakistan so we can all see how he transforms the nation in ninety days and what his foreign policy will be or if he will just be another tool in the hands of the establishment.

    Do you know who else got killed on 27 December 2007 apart from Benazir Bhutto. People are more concern about thier leaders and this a normal act. As all the world knows IK has established an Institution for people who cannot afford cancer treatment and they get free international standard treament free of cost. Therefore rest assure that his own security team is in good hands.
    IK does not need sympathy vote, he is a TIGER as he has proved in 1992. IK & PTI will win because IK & PTI lives in peoples heart.

    though he is in a lot of pain

    Relieved that he’s doing all better now but shockingly unbelievable how he was being carried to the ambulance. Any person who suffers a fall or an accident like that shouldn’t be moved an inch without a cervical collar and a crash board, or else it might not be the exact accident that kills the guy but your irresponsible and emotional outburst to help him when you’re not qualified to.

    I am sorry to hear about Mr. Khan’s accident. I hope he recovers fully and quickly to get back on the campaign trail.

    However, the most amazing thing is the responses to the story. As I write this there are 124 responses and not one trying to blame the USA, India, or Israel for the accident. No crazy conspiracy theories at all. What a refreshing change. In the past, every time a Pakistani got constipated, he or she would try and find a way to blame America.

    Maybe Pakistanis as a nation are growing up and getting over their paranoia. If so, there is hope for Pakistan after all.

    Wish him well. However, God has ways of showing his disapproval as well. The hate filled speeches he has been delivering – calling politicians diesel, bakri, talking of beating people with balla, hunting lions and offending religious sentiments etc appear to not go down with the Almighty and He wants no more of it. IK should focus on his own good, benefits etc.rather than running down others and capitalising on them or receive ovations on them in his speeches.
