Veteran playback singer S. Janaki sustained a head injury after she slipped and fell in a hotel she was staying in at Tirupati on Tuesday. She is declared out of danger and may be ready for discharge by Wednesday morning.

Janaki tripped and fell on the door hinges and sustained an injury on the hind side of her head, just above the neck. She was rushed to the Sri Venkateswara Institute of Medical Sciences (SVIMS) super-specialty hospital for treatment. The doctors reportedly removed the blood clot and surtured the wound.

No surgery

Surgery was ruled out as there was no damage to the brain. Though a diabetic, her sugar and blood pressure levels were under control, according to doctors treating her.

Speaking to the media in a faint voice by evening, Ms. Janaki said that she had undertaken a series of journeys during the last few days that led to a fall in her blood pressure levels. As she had not bolted the door from inside, her son Murali Krishna rushed to her rescue after she fell in the bathroom.

The ace singer was here to witness the marathon concert ‘Sri Annamacharya Sankirtana Yagnam' performed by her nephew G. Balakrishna Prasad at Mahati auditorium.
