SHOCKING: Woman’s dead body broken in parts and carried on a bamboo pole in India

A video of Indian hospital workers crushing the dead body of an elderly woman and hoisting it from a pole because of a shortage of ambulances has become the second incident in a week to spark outrage in India.

The footage shows workers in Orissa state appearing to break the hips of the woman, aged about 80, who died after being hit by a train, and bundling her into a sheet to carry away.

It comes days after a video emerged of a man who was forced to walk for hours carrying his wife’s corpse 10 kilometres (six miles) home from hospital, after she died of tuberculosis.

The two incidents in the eastern state of Orissa have been shared widely on social media and television networks, drawing outrage from users at authorities’ treatment of impoverished patients.

‘This is extremely distressing. We are enquiring into the matter. We are also taking steps to have ambulances to transport bodies,’ Orissa Chief Minister Naveen Patnaik told reporters.
