Doctor jailed for 18 months after being found guilty of boy’s death

Larnaca District Court on Friday sentenced a doctor to 18 months in prison with three years probation after being found guilty over a negligent role he played in the death of a 10-year-old boy in 2018.
The doctor is Iraklis Pantelidakis, from Greece, who worked at the Larnaca General Hospital’s first aid department. The boy named is Stavros Giorgallis from Klavdia, Larnaca.
Giorgallis was taken to the Larnaca Hospital with head wounds he suffered after falling during a basketball game at school in Alethriko.
He was discharged from the hospital too soon. His mother took him back to the hospital later in the day as he continued to have severe headaches.
He was again discharged, and the boy was transferred by ambulance to Nicosia General Hospital, where he died during surgery.
After the sentencing, his mother shouted at the doctor that he should have been ashamed of himself.
