New Delhi, Aug 1 (IANS) A 17-year-old boy suffering from high fever died in the very ambulance that took him to the Lok Nayak hospital here because of negligence by doctors, the family said. The hospital denied this.

A distraught Shree Ram, father of Narela resident and victim Jeet Ram, complained that doctors did not attend to his son although he was in pain for almost two hours.

“He died in the ambulance,” Shree Ram told reporters.

The hospital, however, said that Jeet Ram was brought to hospital around 10 a.m. in a serious condition.

“We got his casualty card made and there was a junior doctor in the ambulance,” additional medical superintendent Manju Mehra told IANS. “The patient’s situation went from bad to worse before he died.”
