Kenyan man dies in South Dakota, help needed to send body home
A Kenyan man has died in Sioux Falls, South Dakota from a brain aneurysm.
Phillip Mutinda died on March 4th, 2015, a day after he collapsed after his heart stopped beating and was taken to an Emergency Room in Sioux Falls.
On March 3rd after he was taken to the ER, he was able to breath again after extensive CPR but he remained unconscious. An MRI revealed that he had a brain aneurisym which had affected most of his brain. He was kept on life support in the ICU overnight but passed on the following morning.
His sister Dorcas Mutinda who lives in Chicago was on her way to see him but did not make it on time. She received a phone call that he had passed on early the following morning.
She now needs help to fly her brother’s body to Kenya where his mother is waiting for his burial. The expected cost is $10,000
Dorcas is the only sibling in the US and cannot be able to meet the expenses and she is asking for members of the community to assist her.
She also needs to accompany her brother’s body back home but this would need more funds..
The family anticipates the funeral to be held on 3/21/15, but that depends on how soon the family is able to raise funds to pay the company transporting him back home.
