In a shocking incident, an injured man died in Kerala after he was left upside down for urinating in the ambulance.
A road-accident victim, who was critically wounded and had head injuries, was positioned upside-down on a stretcher while being shifted to Thissur Medical College and Hospital in Kerala.
The incident took place last week, when the injured person was admitted to a hospital in Palakkad and then taken to Thrissur for better treatment around 8:30 pm.
According to reports, a driver of a private ambulance was upset with an accident victim urinating in his ambulance.
A video that has gone viral on social media showed the injured man lying on an inclined stretcher, one end of which is inside the ambulance and the other end, with the man’s head, on the ground.
However, even though the victim was treated, he scummed to injuries.
A case has been registered against the ambulance driver for ‘negligent act endangering the life of a person’.
“The staff had rushed inside the hospital to pick up gloves to assist the patient and that’s when the driver pulled the stretcher out,” reported NDTV quoting sources.
