A 22-year-old medic has been arrested for sexually abusing a 17-year-old girl as she lay on a stretcher in the back of an ambulance that was taking her to hospital.
The teenager, whose name has not been released, was working at a university cafe in Selangor state on the western coast of Peninsular Malaysia when she fell ill.
She called her boss to tell him she was suffering from a severe stomach ache but by the time he arrived at the cafe she had collapsed and was unconscious.
The worried man managed to carry the girl to a medical clinic on the university campus where a doctor said she needed hospital treatment.
The teenager was put in the university’s own ambulance to take her to a nearby hospital – but when her boss later visited her at the hospital he found her awake and in tears.
The girl eventually said she had been sexually abused in the ambulance by one of the medics who should have been looking after her.
She claimed the man had fondled her breasts and had sexually abused her with his finger.
The teenager said she had been conscious throughout but had felt so weak she had been unable to say or do anything to stop the man.
The girl’s furious employer immediately reported her allegations to police who have launched an investigation.
Police confirmed they had arrested a 22-year-old man who faces charges including sexual assault.
