Narok town residents on Thursday thronged the local district hospital to catch a glimpse of a couple who could not disentangle after spending a romantic night in a lodging.
The two, witnesses said, had met and had a drink at Ntulele Trading Centre on Tuesday evening before checking into a lodging for the night.
An attendant at the establishment said she noticed nothing unusual when she arrived in the morning to clean the rooms, although she skipped the one occupied by the two. But she said shortly after midday, she heard screams from the room and went to check.
“I tried to open the door in vain. I then raised an alarm and the public rushed to the scene and helped break the door,” she said.
It is after gaining entry that they were surprised to find the two entangled, with the woman writhing in pain.
They later alerted the owner of the premises, who called the police.
The two were then taken to a local dispensary before later being referred to Narok North District Hospital where they were admitted and put on a drip. When they arrived at the hospital, they were taken to a private room before being transferred to the Amenity Ward, which is the private wing of the facility with guards in tow.
Doctors at the hospital also tried to separate them in vain. The media and the public were prevented from accessing the ward.
The medics declined to talk to reporters but sources indicated the couple will be transferred to a referral facility today for doctors to try and separate them.
Area police boss Peterson Maelo also declined to talk to the press. The woman’s husband is said to be living elsewhere.
