While the whole world is celebrating mother’s day, this daughter is trying hard to save her mother after losing her father to COVID-19. But, while she was struggling to keep her mother alive, how this ambulance driver molested and harassed her will make you wonder how low humans can stoop.
As per the sources, recently a woman has filed a complaint against an ambulance driver for overcharging her for ferrying her COVID-19 positive mother from one medical facility to another in Maharashtra’s Pune. She also mentioned how that the ambulance driver molested her while taking the money from her.
As per police, the woman’s father succumbed to COVID-19 on April 23. When her mother tested positive, she was being treated at Yashwantrao Chavan Memorial Hospital in Pune’s Pimpri Chinchwad area. But on Thursday, the daughter decided to shift her mother to a private medical facility in Thergaon, where a ventilator bed was available.
Her friend helped her to book an ambulance to transfer her mother from YCHM to the medical facility in Thergaon. As per the sources, the ambulance driver, identified as Kishore Patil (45), had agreed to transport the woman’s mother to Thergaon for Rs 2,500.
But when they reached the Thergaon hospital, the daughter was informed that no ventilator bed was free. When the daughter asked Patil to drive them back to YCMH, he tried to take advantage. He demanded Rs 14,000 to take the woman’s COVID-19-positive mother back to the hospital in Pimpri. And, then he threatened the daughter that he would leave her mother there if she refused to pay the money. Being helpless with no choice left to save her mother, the daughter agreed to pay Rs 14,000.
But, what is even more heartbreaking is the fact that the ambulance driver molested her while taking money from her. As per the police report, “While accepting the money, the man touched her inappropriately and made lewd remarks.”
Though the woman approached the police commissioner and narrated her harrowing experience, it is heartbreaking that she had to go through this horrific experience in the first place. The man has been arrested, but it is heartbreaking how this daughter had to fight so many battles just to keep her mother alive!
At IFORHER, we applaud this daughter’s courage. But, we are ashamed, disappointed, and heartbroken. How can any human stoop you low?
