REGGAE artiste Sizzla remains in a Corporate Area hospital five days after he was involved in a motorcycle accident in St Ann.

The Black Woman and Child singer is said to be resting well after suffering serious injuries including a broken arms and ribs, a fractured collar bone and ruptured liver which caused extensive internal bleeding.

According to his publicist Olimatta Taal, Sizzla, whose real name is Miguel Collins, is progressing well as he is now fully aware, talking and eating following the accident last Wednesday when he was thrown from his motorcycle after it was hit by a bus attempting to overtake the artiste. The bus did not stop.

Thousands of Sizzla fans converged on the St Ann's Bay Hospital on the evening of the accident to hold vigil and await word on the status of the artiste. Sizzla underwent emergency surgery at the St Ann's Bay Hospital, and after being stabilised, he was airlifted to an unspecified Corporate Area hospital last Thursday morning.

The artiste's family has deliberately not named the hospital as they seek a level of privacy in order for Sizzla to fully recover. The family however, continues to thank Sizzla fans at home and abroad for their continued support for him.
