Wanted to write this post as I did my first ever post-mortem last night (26/06/2013) after being MO at day 28. And there’re two victims involved!
If you’d read the newspaper, you would have seen there’s a terrible yet seldom-see-it-everyday accident occurred near Johor here, whereby a police Landrover, with three policemen and five suspects, had an head-on collision with a Proton Iswara. Two victims were killed in the accident and actually I was the one who was asked to find the cause of death for the deceased.
Well, after receiving the call, I started to be restless. Sitting fidgety and wandering around. Nurses started telling me that there’re reporters gathering outside the mortuary.
The things I concerned was neither be the first-timer, nor went home late (as my shift until 10pm only). The things I cared about were: Can I find the cause of death?!
For this, I thank UKM for they integrated forensic science in their curriculum as a compulsory class to be attended. Luckily I was not required to cut it open, or else the PPK there would have been sleeping soundly as one case can’t be settled in hours!
Squeezing my brain, trying to recall forensic knowledge that merely stayed and whatever prof has taught, luckily (should I use “lucky” here?), due to high impact injury, the cause of death was obvious. Thanks god for not putting me in dilemma.
At least I take it as an opportunity of exposure; I outshined the person that I hate (my colleagues). That’s what I tell myself. At least now I’m better than her. I’m not “dua pek gong” sitting there waiting for people to come…
All in all, ok, stop talking nonsense, I just wanna make it as a memory. Sorry if not describe the process in detail (as I’d like to describe) due to medicolegal reasons.
