A one-and-a-half-year-old girl died inside an ambulance in Madhya Pradesh today, because the ambulance was stuck for 30mins in traffic. The traffic was formed due to a wedding procession.

“There was so much traffic that there was no place for the ambulance to move. My daughter was still breathing when she was inside the ambulance, but eventually died due to traffic,” the grieving father of the girl told ANI, Outlook reported.  

The father says that even after he pleaded with everyone that an ambulance was stuck, nobody paid any attention to his requests.

The State Inspector General Satish Chand Saxena said that a probe would be done in the matter and necessary action would be taken.


Almost similar incident

On February 2017, an ambulance with a critical patient was stuck near Hoskote signal in Bengaluru, Karnataka. The signal was stuck because of CM Siddaramaiah’s envoy. Thankfully, the ambulance had a paramedic on board, who was somehow able to manage the situation.

This is not a separate incident. In July 2016, A woman died in an ambulance as she was stuck in traffic near Hoskote signal for half hour for CM Siddaramaiah’s envoy to pass.


The Logical Indian urges people to take notice of the fact that in cases of emergency, VVIP treatment, or for that matter traffic congestion for any reason is not acceptable as lives are at stake.
