Chunk Collapses At Chittaranjan Cancer Hospital


Kolkata: A part of the ceiling in the Male Ward of the Chittaranjan Cancer Hospital, in Hazra, collapsed on Wednesday.

The incident took place in the fourth floor of the hospital in the male ward. The chunk fell in between two beds where two patients were laid in their respective beds. It was a narrow escape for both of them. They escaped without any injury. It, once again, raises the question of the safety of patients in hospitals.

A similar incident happened in the Nil Ratan Sarkar hospital where a chunk from the sixth floor cornice fell on four people, on Tuesday. Three out of them are stable while one of them is critical.
