A determined household tried to sneak a dead relative out of their coronavirus-ravaged city in Ecuador — by pretending he was asleep in the car, in accordance to experiences.
Video footage obtained by El Comercio exhibits closely armed troops stopping the blue jeep at a checkpoint leaving Guayaquil, the city so devastated in the pandemic that our bodies have been left rotting in the streets.
The army officers repeatedly instruct the 4 different passengers to get up the supposedly sleeping man slumped in between two others in the again — with the household insisting he’s simply sleeping, El Comercio says.
“He has simply died,” one of the kin lastly admitted, in accordance to Mi Diario.
With COVID-19 brutalizing the city, it was initially feared the 62-year-old man had succumbed to the illness. However officers instructed Mi Diario that Pedro Washington Víctor Ramírez died from a coronary heart assault blamed on diabetes.
Navy sources instructed El Comercio that the household mentioned they have been making an attempt to take away the corpse from Guayaquil as a result of it was inconceivable to bury him with the overwhelming toll from the pandemic, with many left in makeshift cardboard coffins.
Authorities finally let the household — Ramírez’s son, daughter-in-law and two different kin — go to neighboring Cerecita to bury him, the experiences say.
