Shocking video footage has emerged of Covid stricken frontline workers discovering that a body bag contained a person who was still alive.
The New York Post revealed the shocking scenes on May 3. Workers were stunned at the mistake that had been made.
The mortuary workers had moved the body from the hearse and then opened the yellow body bag. The mistake was discovered as the patient’s head was exposed in front of a nursing home employee. The patient is said to be in a stable condition now and has been returned to the nursing home. The incident has been investigated by the Chinese authorities.
As reported by CNN, the person who shot the video can be heard commenting: “The nursing home is such a mess. They sent a living person on a hearse and said they were dead. The undertaker staff said they were still moving … It is irresponsible, really irresponsible.”
The video has been released widely across China’s Weibo platform. One person stated that the incident “counts as intentional homicide” and another person said: “The problems in Shanghai are fully exposed this time.”
