Update: 3:53PM A 23-YEAR-OLD farmer from Rotuma was airlifted to CWM Hospital after being allegedly involved in an accident.

Police confirm that last Saturday the man was part of a drinking party at Motusa Village.

He later dropped off a friend at Pepjei District on his motorcycle. He was later found unconscious with some serious injuries along Oinafa coastal Rd with his bike on the road.

In a separate incident, a 20-year-old tertiary student of Nawaka, Nadi is also in a critical condition at the CWM Hospital.

The victim had followed his ex-girlfriend to her house where he was questioned and assaulted by her brother and his workmate.

He was admitted at Lautoka Hospital and upon doctors advice, was airlifted to CWM Hospital on Sunday.

Police say the two suspects were interviewed and released with investigations continuing.
