It has been reported that a man died after being admitted to the Accident and Emergency unit of the Manor Hospital in Walsall, West Midlands.
It is being stated that the man was allowed to grab some fresh air despite his condition and he collapsed shortly afterwards.
His plight was however ignored as he lay on the ground just yards from the hospital entrance as the medical staff, including nurses, porters and paramedics refused to pay any heed to him.
It has been added that as the man lay on the floor, members of the public stepped over his body and there were some who took his photograph and video footage as well.
According to an eyewitness who was unnamed, the incident was horrific.
He said, "The man just dropped dead outside the hospital. Nobody seemed to know what to do to help him. I was outraged when members of the public actually started filming him, and taking photos on their mobile phones as they walked by and laughed."
He further added that such incidents make us think about the kind of people we are producing in this country.
Following this staff has been suspended.
