Moroccan King’s private physician treats Laila Elwi and Poussy
Morocco’s King Mohammad VI has sent his private physician to treat Egyptian actresses Laila Elwi and Poussy after they were in a car accident while driving to the city of Tanta. The King wanted to ensure that both actresses receive the best medical care since they were injured in his country.
According the Egyptian based daily, Al Ahram, Poussy revealed that Laila, director Osama Fawzi, Egypt’s Ambassador to Morocco Ashraf Za’za, and herself were in the Ambassador’s car, which is a Jaguar, on their way to Tanta. The actress added that the heavy rainfalls caused the car to slide 40 meters downhill crashing into trees.
Poussy stressed that if it weren’t for the trees, none of the passengers would have survived the crash. She added that she suffered some injuries and was treated for them, and Laila was injured as well but had already gone home to Egypt.
The actress thanked God that he injuries were not critical and revealed that the Egyptian Ambassador remains in hospital. The director had minor wounds, which he was treated for, and is now on his way back to Egypt.
The two actresses had come to Morocco early last week to take part in the International Film Festival. Poussy was on the judging committee, whereas Laila’s film “Bahib El Cima”, which is directed by Osama, was competing in event.
