STAFFORD March 8: Biju Stephen (47) and his family, natives of Ranni in Pathanamthitta district of Kerala, arrived in Stafford on a Senior Carer visa with all hopes to set up a life of their dreams.
The whole family dreams were shattered with Biju falling ill with heart related illness and passed away while undergoing treatment at the Stoke on Trent Hospital on Monday 7th March 2022. Reports say that Biju was suffering from heart related illness and was receiving treatment.
Biju arrived with his wife Binu and two children on 7th February 2022 and since then the family have been living in another Malayalee’s family home in Stafford.
Biju had sought some treatment for heart related ailment on 25th February 2022 at the Stafford Hospital where it was found that he required further specialist treatment as there were some ECG variation and was moved to Stoke Royal Hospital.
Following further examinations it was found that Biju required an operation due to a heart block and he was admitted to the hospital and was kept under observation with treatment.
