Administrators at the government-run hospital in Uttar Pradesh state vowed "strict action" after images emerged showing the patient on a stretcher with the amputated limb being used as a headrest.

This is the shocking moment a man used his own left FOOT as a pillow after it was amputated following a bus crash.

Taking cognisance of the incident, Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath had announced a probe even as he announced a compensation of Rs 2,00,000 for the patient whose amputated leg was used as a pillow.

India Today reported that two doctors and two nurses were suspended over the incident.

Ghanshyam was working as a helper on a school bus when it overturned while trying to avoid colliding with a tractor in the village of Bamouri, 34 miles from the hospital.

Chief Medical Superintendent, Harish Chandra Arya, said: "It is not yet clear who chose to use the amputated leg to rest Ghanshyam's head".
