طبيب لبناني يتعرض لصدمة قوية.. بعدما وصف لمريضته الطفله العلاج قتلها بدون قصد!

لم يتوقع الطبيب المُعالج أن الطفلة التي كشف عليها وكتب لها العلاج ستلاقي حتفها على يديه، ففي حادثة غريبة شهدتها لبنان، فبعد قيام أحد الأطباء بفحص طفلة 3 سنوات ومعاينتها وكتابة العلاج المناسب لها، صادف أن ينتهي دوام الطبيب وقت خروج الطفلة ووالدتها من المستشفى.

وبشكل مفاجئ قامت الطفلة بالافلات من يد والدتها وركضت في الشارع في اللحظة التي كان بها الطبيب يقود سيارته، ودون أن ينتبه لها قام بدهسها مما أدى إلى وفاتها.

لم يستطع الطبيب تحمل الصدمة حتى انه لم ينظر للطفلة بعد الدهس، ووقع على الأرض من هول الصدمة وتم نقله للمستشفى من أجل تلقي العلاج بسبب الصدمة الكبيرة التي تعرض لها.

وحتى هذه اللحظة لم يتم الكشف عن مصير الطبيب وفي حال خرج من المستشفى وما هو العقاب الذي يتعرض له، إلا ان الحادثة شكلت صدمة كبيرة في الشارع اللبناني.
