Meanwhile, the commission heard testimonies on Monday from Dr Natalie Whylie, a senior medical doctor at the Kingston Public Hospital and Dr Sai Nagendra Prasad Kadiyala, a consultant forensic pathologist, who had performed post mortems on some of bodies of the men killed during the operation. Dr Whylie testified that between May 22 and 28, 2010, the hospital recorded 121 cases, which included 70 fatal and 51 non-fatal injuries attributed to the operation in West Kingston. “The injuries ranged from superficial lacerations to severe life-threatening injuries involving major vascular neurological and bone structure,” she said. Dr Whylie also testified that several bodies were taken to the hospital by police officers including the bodies of 26 males, which were brought in the back of two police trucks on May 25, at 8:44 am and 12 unidentified male bodies between ages 15 and 40 were taken to the hospital in another truck on the same day at 2:35 pm.Dr Prasad in his testimony told the commission that between June 21 and July 11, 2010, he performed post-mortem on 35 of the bodies of the men who were killed in Tivoli and that the majority of the bodies had gunshot wounds and were  in a state of late decomposition. The pathologist when questioned about the cause of the decomposition testified that the temperature and the fact that the bodies were exposed to sunlight and were still clad in clothing had resulted in the state of decomposition.
