A nine-year-old boy died after district hospital in Uttar Pradesh’s Shahjahanpur allegedly denied him an ambulance.
The district hospital in Shahjahanpur, where Afroz was brought, referred him to Lucknow for special treatment.
According to Afroz’s parents, when they asked for an ambulance to take their child to Lucknow, they were denied the same.
“He was suffering from fever and we gave him some medicines. After his condition worsened, we got him admitted in Shahjahanpur district hospital. The doctors told us to go somewhere else saying there were no facilities available in this hopsital,” Afroz’s mother told news agency ANI.
“We told the ambulance driver and other staff to take all the money we have but they refused to provide us with the facility. There were three ambulances parked in the premises. I do not know why we were denied one,” NDTV quoted Afroz’s father as saying.
