There’s no denying the fact that doctors are seen as the most important part of the society, but unfortunately humanity too has a little share of heartbreaks in its history and thanks to these frazzled medical practitioners.

He himself created his own euthanasia machines that would allow terminally ill patients to die in two ways.
