A lady identified as Diaso has lost her life just two weeks to end of her housemanship at General Hospital, Odan, Lagos Island.

According to reports, Diaso was severely injured when a lift she entered on the 10th floor of the doctors’ quarters crashed to the ground on Monday night, August 1, 2023.

A source said, “She completed her medical degree at Babcock University and had just two weeks to complete her housemanship at the General Hospital, Odan, Lagos Island.

“She had entered the elevator at the doctors’ quarters to collect her food from a dispatch rider waiting downstairs. She was in the elevator when it crashed from the 10th floor to the ground. She was rushed to the emergency ward, where she passed away. We have been complaining about this malfunctioning elevator for the past year, and nothing has been done about it.

“This incident could have been totally avoided.”

It was gathered that it took an hour to get her out of the broken lift, and when they got to the emergency ward, there was allegedly no blood to transfuse into her.
