The elderly woman who was hit by a bicycle tyre thrown from a block of flats last Friday is in stable condition and out of intensive care, her son said yesterday.

Madam Mahani Abdullah, 67, had undergone spinal cord surgery at the Singapore General Hospital on Monday to regain the use of her limbs. She had regained consciousness by Tuesday.

"Doctors said the surgery went okay, and we're hoping that there won't be any complications," said Mr Jusman Abdul Aziz, 35, an executive at a freight forwarding company. "It's still early, but right now they said (her condition) has stabilised."

He added that his mother had been on a diet of soft food since Tuesday and was no longer on a drip, but was still unable to move her arms and legs because of her head and spinal injuries.
