UP: Son dies on father's shoulder after being denied hospital admission and stretcher
After a tribal man in Odisha had to carry his wife's dead body for 10 kilometers because he was denied an ambulance by the hospital authorities, a father has lost his ailing son on his shoulder.

On Monday, Lala Lajpat Rai (LLR) Hospital, a government hospital in Kanpur, Uttar Pradesh allegedly denied to admit the patient.

Ansh Kumar, 12, had fever since Sunday night and had been admitted to a hospital in Fazalgunj but after showing no improvement, he was taken to LLR Hospital where he was denied admission to the emergency section.

He was instead suggested to go to a children's medical centre but was allegedly not provided any assistance to carry the child.

His father, Sunil Kumar, decided to carry his son on his shoulder to the children's hospital which was only 250 metres away but Ansh lost his life midway.

Kumar has alleged that the doctors took half an hour before asking him to take his son to the children's medical centre and when he asked for a stretcher to carry his son, he was denied the same. By the time he reached the children's hospital, his son had already died. Ansh was declared 'dead on arrival' by doctors.

Later, Kumar carried the dead body of his son to home on his shoulder.

This is not the first case that shows the health of the health sector in India. Earlier, a man from Rajasthan's Kherli village had to wait for two and a half hours with the dead body of his wife for an ambulance to arrive.

In Odisha, a train ran over a woman and killed her. The hospital staff broke her body at the hip to carry her easily.
