In an incident of sheer negligence in Uttar Pradesh's Kanpur, a 12-year-old boy died on his father’s shoulder due to lack of timely medical care. The incident took place on August 26 when Ansh, a resident of Kanpur’s Fazalganj area, was admitted to a medical facility with high fever.

“Ansh had high fever…He was in Class 6 and very intelligent. I took him to a local hospital, they asked me to take him to the government hospital,” says Mr Sunil Kumar, a mechanic. His son was treated at a local clinic for two days.

Mr Kumar had to wait for 30 minutes at the emergency ward of city’s largest hospital, before he was allegedly told to take the boy to the children’s section. The doctors did not even examine the child, says the father.

Meanwhile, Kanpur DM Kaushal Raj Sharma and JVSM Medical College Principal Navneet Kumar have ordered inquiry in the matter.
