A handloom weaver from Pallipattu Village once got tuberculosis, got treatment for it, and was cured. Four years later, his village doctor recommended he go back to the Tambaram TB hospital in Chennai where he was treated for a check up. He came to the city with a friend, and took a train to Tambaram. As he was crossing the road in front of the hospital, a speeding motorcycle hit him. He flew threw the air, landed on his head, and died immediately. According to the news report, the road just in front of the hospital is “accident prone,” but barriers that had been placed on the road near the hospital to reduce the danger to pedestrians had been removed.
