Video: Ambulance service refused – Father forced to carry dead body of 3-year-old son Raheem on shoulders

Bengaluru: A person was forced to carry the dead body of his 3-year-old son on a two-wheeler after he was left with no option since he was allegedly denied ambulance service by government hospital.

Raheem (3) was brought to Anekal Government Hospital yesterday evening after suffering injuries in a hit-and-run case at Karpur Gate. He was declared brought dead.

According to the news published in DC, after the doctors declared the child brought dead, the father of the child requested for ambulance. However, hospital authorities allegedly refused to provide ambulance service to carry the dead body home.

The surprising thing was that the hospital authorities did neither conduct post-mortem of the child nor inform the police.

It is reported that the doctors informed the police only after police rushed to hospital on receiving information through media.

Father carrying the dead body waited in front of the hospital for almost an hour. In the video, father can be seen carrying the dead body of his son on his shoulder and climbing on the pillion of the bike of a man who came to his help.

According to the report, the boy’s parents are from Assam and they are daily wage workers.

Meanwhile, Jnanaprakash, Taluk Health Officer admitted that the doctors of the hospital committed a mistake by not informing the police and allowing the father of the child to carry his son’s dead body without conducting post-mortem.
Police is on the lookout for the parents of the deceased to carry out further investigation.
