6 students rejected by Malaysian hospital for not having identification

MALAYSIA - Malaysia Nanban reported that parents of six secondary students claimed that a Sg Buloh hospital staff had refused to let their children into the treatment room after they were injured in a van accident.

They alleged that the staff had refused to let them in because the students did not have their identity cards with them.

One of the parents, known only as Kalaiarasan, said the van ferrying the students home from school was involved in an accident in Damansara Damai Idaman at 2pm on Thursday.

When the ambulance brought them to the hospital, he claimed that although a student with head injury was immediately treated, the rest were not allowed into the treatment room by the staff.

However, the staff relented after the parents, who gathered upon hearing the accident, protested.
