Physician from Kerala, India, was killed after car overturned and caught fire 

An Indian physician, who served Dubai for over two decades, has been identified as the victim of Tuesday’s car fire accident near Dubai Trade Centre Roundabout. Dr John Marshall Skinner, 60, who worked with Al Musalla Medical Centre (now Prima Care Clinic-AVIVO Group) was driving to his clinic when the accident took place, a former colleague said on Wednesday.

According to Dubai Police, the driver had lost control over the car, which overturned and caught fire. He was trapped inside and could not be rescued as the fire engulfed the car and gutted it completely.

However, it was only on Wednesday that his family and colleagues got to know that Dr. John was the victim of the car fire, said Shaukath Marangattu who has known the Malayali physician for 16 years. He said Dr John’s wife Dr Sisy Marshall, who is currently not practicing, had got worried after her husband did not return home on Tuesday. “Since he had not reached the clinic and also was not contactable, they went to Al Rafa Police Station,” he said. It was then they were told about the car accident following which the victim was identified as Dr John. He said Dr John’s family and colleagues have been devastated after hearing the tragic news. “Nobody has been able to digest this. We are all still in shock. I’ve known him from the day I came here 16 years ago. All were in tears when I went to the clinic today,” said Shaukath.

Hailing from Thiruvananthapuram in the south Indian state of Kerala, Dr John initially ran his own clinic in Meena Bazar, said Shaukath.
