Doctor examines child in front of corpse

By Staff

Saudi police are interrogating a doctor at a private hospital for examining an eight-year-old boy in the presence of a dead body, a local daily said Friday.

The boy’s father said he was shocked when he entered the room where the doctor was examining his sick son and saw the corpse, Kabar Arabic language daily reported from the western Red Sea port of Jeddah.

“The presence of that dead body shocked and frightened my son….I informed the police about this and they said they are summoning the doctor for interrogation,” the unidentified Saudi father said.
