Kottayam, Feb. 28 (ANI): Kerala Chief Minister Oommen Chandy, who escaped unhurt after his car skid into a road-side drain early on Sunday, said that he had his seat belt on which probably caused his ‘miraculous’ escape in the mishap.
“I was returning from Malappuram as I was with the President for the past two days. The car skidded near Ettumanur but I had put the belt so nothing happened to me or anyone of us in the car. It was a miraculous escape. I am safe and unhurt, however, my gunman sustained minor injuries,” Chandy told the media here.
Following the close shave, Chandy continued his journey to his home town Puthuppally in Kottayam district, in an escort vehicle.
The exact reason for the accident is yet to be ascertained. (ANI)
