Hospital administrator accused of taking selfies with bodies in Turkey’s Antalya
Salim Uzun - ANTALYAAn administrator at the Gazipaşa State Hospital in the Mediterranean province of Antalya has been detained for questioning that he has repeatedly taken selfies with bodies at the hospital’s morgue.
Co-workers complained to authorities that F.S., the hospital’s director of administration and of the financial department, repeatedly took selfies with bodies in the morgue, resulting in the manager’s detention for questioning.
The suspect’s mobile phone was examined, while the suspect was released after an order by the prosecutor.
The deputy chief physician of the hospital, Şebnem Çelik, said they had learned about the claims but that an official statement would be issued by the General Secretariat of the Public Hospitals Union in Antalya, which said the incident was still under investigation.
“The incident is completely alleged. The staff member who was mentioned in the incident was released after his testimony. There is a possibility that the incident could be misunderstood. Various photographs can be shot in a hospital, but it is not yet clear whether he took a selfie with a corpse. We are investigating the incident in detail,” the institution said.
