Respected Sir/Madam,

Subject: Reason for being absent from work

Dear Sir,

Sir, I am (Name), (Job position) from (Division name). Please be informed that my sixteen years young daughter had gone on a school trip with her friends to (Place name) where they met a horrible road accident (Show your cause). Their bus was hit by another bus and 6 people died in this incident including the bus driver (Explain causes in brief). This news was broken to me by my daughter’s friend whose sister was accompanying my daughter. I was told that my only daughter had broken her limbs and had met several injuries. She was admitted to a local emergency hospital. Knowing this, my world came crashing down and without a second thought I left for the airport, took a flight to Gilgit and then reached (Place name). The only thing that could relieve me was seeing my daughter alive in front of my eyes. I couldn’t think of anything else. The horror of her meeting an accident was just too big for me.

Thankfully my daughter is alive. She has sustained several injuries but is undergoing proper medical care here at Lahore. The doctors have said she’ll be all well in a couple of months. I tried calling the office from (Placename) the next day but had signal problems there. I am sorry that I couldn’t inform you about my absence from work in time. Kindly accept my apology.


Yours obediently


Jon Position…
