Santo Domingo.- The civil engineer Francina Hungria, shot in the face during a car-jacking of her vehicle last month, continues in Miami, where she’s upbeat on the recovery of the surviving left eye, attended by the prominent Dominican ophthalmologist Salomon Melgen.
Her father Frank said during the evaluation, his daughter sees not just spots, but for the first time starts to see the sun’s rays on one side of the eye.
Quoted by listin.com.do by phone Sunday, Hungria said he took Francina to a church in Miami yesterday, where he introduced her to the Dominican religious community gathered there in a mass, and a show of supportand solidarity.
He says he’s confident the prayers for his daughter will return vision to her only eye.
The proimising young professional was the victim of a November 23 assault on the busy Linclon Av. in Santo Domingo.
