Days after the news of apathy of a hospital in Odisha made a man carry his wife’s dead body on his shoulders, yet another incident has come to light. This time, from Kanpur in UP, where a 12-year-old boy died on his father’s shoulder.
Sunil Kumar had taken his 12-year-old son Ansh who was having high fever to the Lala Lajpat Rai Hospital on Monday. Not only that the hospital refused to admit him, and referred him to a nearby children’s hospital. But the hospital refused to provide any service to take the ailing child to the medical facility.
Kumar was then forced to carry his son on his shoulders to the Hallet hospital, but unfortunately the kid did not make it up to there. Before reaching the hospital, Ansh had lost the battle with his life.
A heartbroken Kumar said “I begged doctors at the emergency to examine my son and admit him. They took 30 minutes before telling me to take the kid to the children’s hospital.”
The Hallet hospital claims that the child was dead when his father brought him.
“We admitted him. We found that there was no heart rate, no pulse, and the pupils are fixated and dilated. We could tell from his condition that he died two to three hours before being brought in,” Dr RC Gupta, the chief medical officer of the Hallet hospital told NDTV.
