A 17-year-old boy was injured on Tuesday after he fell from his two-wheeler while trying to avoid two stray cows that were approaching him. An official in the Greater Chennai Corporation (GCC) said the teenager was talking on the phone while riding his vehicle on Singarachari street in Triplicane. “He was taken to a hospital for first-aid, and sent home the same night. We have not received any CCTV footage yet. More investigation would follow after we get the footage,” the official added.
