ALWRICK TOBY, who was abandoned by his caregiver at King's Wharf in San Fernando, was yesterday taken to the San Fernando General Hospital after Mayor Navi Muradali intervened.
Up to yesterday evening, he was being treated at the hospital's Emergency Department.
Toby's story was highlighted in Monday's Express, and he was visited by Mayor Muradali yesterday.
Muradali said he was told Toby was originally from Chaguanas and had suffered a stroke.
Muradali called officials of the South West Regional Health Authority, informing them of Toby's condition.
Toby was taken to the hospital in an ambulance and may have to be kept there for some time, Muradali said.
He said Toby will be visited at the hospital by social services officials, who will be able to further assist.
Toby told the Express he left the San Fernando General Hospital last October with his son, who placed him in the care of a woman at King's Wharf.
The woman lived in a nearby wooden shack. She left about two months ago and the house has since collapsed.
Toby, having nowhere to go, remained at the collapsed house until he was again hospitalised yesterday.
