In a disturbing video, which has surfaced online, body of a COVID-19 victim can be seen falling out of an old ambulance as the ambulance got out of Vidisha Medical College in Madhya Pradesh. The incident took place on April 23.
It is being reported that authorities at the under-construction medical college, which was converted into the district’s only dedicated COVID-19 hospital, were refusing to hand over the bodies of the deceased to the families.
Restless relatives of COVID-19 victims gathered outside the hospital on April 23 morning. It was at this point that the ambulance left the hospital and the body fell from it.
Vidisha Medical College dean Sunil Nandeshwar told a daily: “The incident occurred when the hospital staff were trying to cremate the deceased. The ambulance was old and was donated by an NGO and the door broke, leading to the situation.”
