Child bit by stray dogs in Larkana breaths his last

Hasnain, a six-year old, whose face was munched by stray dogs’ bites in Larkana, loses his life on Wednesday at the National Institute of Child Health (NICH) Karachi.

Hasnain was under treatment at the NICH, where he underwent multiple face surgeries.

Hasnain was immediately shifted to Chandka Medical Hospital, Larkana in critical condition when he was attacked by the stray dogs.

However, the doctors at the hospital refused to treat the child due to severe injuries and asked his parents to take him away to any hospital in Karachi.

The parents brought the injured child to Indus Hospital in Karachi where they were advised to take the child to Civil Hospital.

The Civil Hospital administration refused to take the case and asked them to shift the patient to Jinnah Hospital.

The helpless parents shifted Hasnain to one hospital from another in a bid to get some treatment and finally brought him to National Institute of Child Health (NICH) Karachi.

They have sought help from Sindh government for the treatment of their child.

Hasnain’s father told that no ruler supported him in the need of hour.

“We shifted our child from Larkana to Karachi own behalf self-support. Doctors are demanding for blood bottles. How can we arrange blood,” he added.

He also demanded from the government to support for treatment of his child.

A rabid dog had bitten the child 25 days earlier and was also given initial vaccine at the local hospital, the doctor said.

It may be noted that the total number of people who have died of dog bites in the province thus far this year has reached 22.
