In what some may label as a bizarre sight, a doctor in Sacramento, California, is said to have joined a traffic court hearing on Zoom while performing surgery on a patient.

BBC reported Scott Green was dressed in surgical scrubs in an operating theatre when he appeared at his virtual trial on Thursday, the Sacramento Bee reported.

When asked by the judge, the doctor explained he had no qualms with continuing with the proceedings and he had “another surgeon right here who is doing the surgery with me”.
