The issue of the unavailability of adequate medical facilities in the country has again generated concern, following the train and BRT bus collision in Lagos State on Thursday morning.
It was earlier reported that the train collided with the Lagos State Government bus with three people reported dead and several others injured.
A video that emerged online captured the victims of the Train and bus accident being treated on the floor outside the Lagos State University Teaching Hospital.
The injured victims were rushed to the general hospital for medical attention.
It is no news that LASUTH always experiences unavailability of bed spaces and this has sparked reactions among many netizens.
