[VIDEO] Man's shocking message to father one hour before he died of coronavirus

Monday, June 29, 2020 • Tamil Comments

The video message of a man to his father from a hospital in Hyderabad an hour before he died of the novel coronavirus has shaken the country, as the heartbreaking video recently went viral.

In his last video message, the 26-year-old man mentioned that he was feeling breathless as the doctors had allegedly removed the ventilator support. He was admitted to the Hyderabad Government Chest hospital after being denied admission to 10 private hospitals in the city, as per his father's claims. The incident happened on Friday. In the selfie video which he had recorded from his hospital bed, the deceased is heard saying, "They have removed ventilator and have not been responding to my plea for the last three hours to provide oxygen support. My heart has stopped and only lungs are working, but I am unable to breathe, daddy. Bye daddy. Bye all, bye daddy."

However, the hospital has denied the allegations and an official has claimed that the patient was suffering from myocarditis which led to his sudden collapse. "The ventilator support was very much there, but the patient was in such a critical stage that he could not feel the oxygen supply," the hospital's superintendent Mahboob Khan reportedly said. "We have come across such cases in the last few days. Usually, aged people die because of the collapse of the lungs infected by Covid-19. We are seeing a new phenomenon of people in the age group of 25-40 years succumbing because of viral infection in the heart. They are provided oxygen, but they feel it insufficient," he further added.

The victim's father mentioned that his son died a while after sending the video and that his last rites were performed on Saturday. "My son was suffering from high fever on June 24. After trying for admission in a few hospitals, he was finally admitted to the Chest Hospital on June 24, where he died on June 26," the father reportedly stated.
