The fathers of two teenaged boys killed in a road accident got the shock of their life when they were handed decomposed bodies by the hospital.
Hospital officials told the two men that the bodies were in that condition because of a power failure at the morgue, but the fathers insisted on suing the management.
The two boys, aged around 15, were killed in a car crash near the Western Saudi Red Sea port of Al Qunfudah and their bodies were sent to the morgue on Sunday.
“Their fathers went to the hospital to take their bodies on the next day but were shocked they were decomposed,” 'Sabq' newspaper said.
“The hospital management explained that there was a power failure that led to a rise in the morgue temperatures which caused the decomposition, but the two fathers rejected that explanation and said they would sue the hospital.”
