An unidentified man, said to be unconscious was reportedly abandoned by the side of the road in Lagos after a general hospital refused to admit him allegedly due to lack of bed space.
The man had Intravenous drip attached to his hand and was left unsupervised at Fagbola street, Cele Bus Stop, opposite Oando Filling Station, behind Diamond Bank, Akowonjo in Lagos state.
According to an eyewitness who spoke exclusively to LIB, the man collapsed by the roadside on Tuesday afternoon and was rushed to a government hospital by passersby later that day.
At the hospital, he was given first aid to resuscitate him but they refused to admit him on the grounds that there was no bed space for him. At night, at about 8 p.m., an ambulance belonging to the Alimosho local government returned him to the spot where he slumped and abandoned him there.
He’s been lying on the road since yesterday. No one knows his identity or how to get across to members of his family.
