A heartbreaking viral video a 6-year-old named Shivam, pushing the stretcher of his sick grandfather, Chedi Yadav, along with his mother, Bindu Yadav, has broken many hearts online.
The shocking incident happened in Deorio district, Uttar Pradesh. As per the reports, Shivam’s grandfather suffered multiple fractures and needed immediate medical attention. But sadly, the ward boy demanded ₹30 from the young boy’s mother to push the stretcher but she refused.
Allegedly, the hospital staff didn’t offer any help.
Hospital staff was asking for Rs 30 every time for taking the stretcher to the ward for the dressing of my father and when I refused to give him the money, he refused to push the stretcher, so I had to drag it with the help of my son Shivam.
As the video went viral, District Magistrate Amit Kishore, visited the family members of the patients in the hospital. Post which, the hospital was asked to submit a report on the matter. After the proper investigation, it was found that the ward boy did ask for a bribe. He was found to be a culprit and now he has been removed.
Angry and unhappy netizens came forward to express their disappointment with the sad state of affairs and the lack of empathy.
Dear child????, SALUTE to U, You are a fighter, you successfully fought to the filth of greed and corruption at this young age.
The viral video is two-days-old and prima facie, the ward boy has been found to be the culprit. He has been removed by the chief medical officer. We will ensure that such incidents do not take place again.
While this 6-YO and his mother’s courage is worth an applaud, it is heartbreaking how many in our country are struggling with the broken healthcare system. We wish this grandfather a speedy recovery and hope no family has to undergo such a horrific experience.
