Midweek Sport - - NEWS -

A TEENAGER pos­ing as a doc­tor fooled work­ers at a hos­pi­tal for a MONTH be­fore he was caught out.

The 17-year-old was ar­rested last week af­ter staff at St Mary’s Med­i­cal Cen­ter’s gy­nae­col­ogy de­part­ment were alerted that a “young black male who ap­peared to be a child was dressed as a doc­tor”.

The boy, who has not been named, al­legedly wit­nessed an ob­stet­rics exam on a woman.

Po­lice said he had been walk­ing around wear­ing a white lab coat and car­ry­ing a stetho­scope, say­ing he was a doc­tor.

When con­fronted by of­fi­cers, the teen said he had worked there “for years” and that “his whole fam­ily knows he is a doc­tor”.

The lad’s mum said he was under care for an ill­ness but re­fuses to take any med­i­ca­tion.
