7 year-old Syrian child dies after being rejected from four hospitals for not having a valid ID

A seven-year-old Syrian child died after being turned away from four hospitals in the southern Turkish province of Antalya due to his lack of a valid ID. Izzettin Ahmed, the child’s father, realized his child was suffering from a high fever and initially took him to the Antalya Research and Training Hospital. They were rejected after Ahmed told the emergency staff that they were Syrians and he had no ID. After the four rejections, Ahmed stopped looking for a hospital and took his son back to their house. He told Doğan News Agency that he found his son dead after he woke up at around 5 a.m. one morning. He called medical teams to the scene and young Ali İzzettin’s body was taken to the local forensic medicine institute for an autopsy, before being buried in the nearby Kurşunlu cemetery. Ahmed said he would be filing complaints against the hospitals that rejected his son.
