Lamenting man carried dead wife's body on foot

SHARE:

The Indian man couldn't afford a vehicle so he carried his wife on foot for 10 kilometers instead.

Dana Manjhi, an Indian man, resulted to carrying his dead wife's body to transport her back to their village because of his incapability to hire a vehicle.


He walked for 6.2 miles or 10 kilometers by foot on an intensely humid Wednesday. His wife's body, wrapped in a blue cloth, was hoisted to his shoulder. His 12-year-old daughter accompanied him through their plight.

His wife, Aman Dei, 42, died due to tuberculosis on Tuesday night at a hospital in the eastern state of Odisha.


Manjhi and his daughter were spotted by passersby who called a local journalist.

They were found by Odisha TV journalist Ajit Singh and recorded a video of them that were shared by many people in India.

Manjhi said in the video: "I'm carrying the dead body of my wife as I am poor and cannot afford a vehicle. I told the same to the hospital authorities. They said they could not offer help."

A car then was organized for Manjhi.

However, contradicting claims were made by the hospital. They said that the death of his wife wasn't confirmed and there was no discharge slipped issued by the hospital staff.

A district offical, Brundha D, have already ordered an investigation on the incident.

Odisha is one of the most distant states in India. According to a 2011 UN report, it has the lowest ranking on Human Development Index among the 19 Indian states.

As per World Economic Forum Global Competitiveness Index, India ranks 106 out of 140 countries for health care.
