Man’s Severed Leg Used as Pillow; Strange but True
This morning I had a Strange But True story about a man in India who was involved in a school bus accident and was taken to the hospital. Once he arrived at the hospital, he had his leg amputated. According to the report in the New York Post, after the man's leg was amputated, the hospital used it for his pillow. Say what you want about health care here in the United States, but I've never heard of something like this happening here. On the New York Post website, there are pictures and a video that was taken by a relative of the victim. I will warn you, they are very graphic. If bloody pictures gross you out, you do not want to see this. He wasn't the only one that was hurt, The Post reported that sources said 25 school children were injured as well. The report states that the bus swerved to avoid hitting a tractor.
According to the New York Post, several people at the hospital have been suspended and the government says action will be taken against the responsible parties. I'm sure the guy was so drugged up he probably had no clue, but his family was obviously upset and rightfully so. Can you say lawsuit?
