    Fire Extinguishers are to be placed at a convenient height in which a person does not have to bend down in half or reach up on his toes to take a Fire Extinguisher from a Fire Point. There appears to be something wrong with the positioning of the Extinguisher in this case. via DM iPad app

    So the police spokesman had nothing else to say as to who was arrested or which police officer has got the santhosam to avoid arrests.

    The account of the incident is unbelievable.
    Were the fire extinguishers fixed above the reach of employees? It is up to the hospital's safety dept.
