A young man has reportedly lost his life largely because of doctors inability to transfuse him blood due to his family’s religious beliefs against blood transfusions.
The family are said to be members of the Jehova witness church who kicked against their ward having his condition stabilized by giving him blood by doctors on duty.
In a short video going round on social media, his body was laid in state with his school friends paying him last respect.
According to a Twitter user, the last words of the boy before his death was,
“Mum have I done something wrong? Have I insulted any elderly person bro? Sister didn’t we go to church together? But why?
