NEW DELHI:  Traffic Jam in NCR area cost life of a seven-year-old boy as the ambulance that was taking him to AIIMS in New Delhi got stuck.

The incident took place on Saturday evening when an ambulance carrying Luv Kush was reaching Delhi’s All India Institute of Medical Sciences. However, the ambulance got caught in a 10-km long jam triggered by protesting homebuyers in Noida's Sector 128. The boy, a resident of Uttar Pradesh’s Firozabad was suffering from high fever.

Noida police officials said that around 200 homebuyers were protesting against the builder in Noida for delay in possession of their flats. They had blocked a section of Noida-Greater Noida Expressway.

The ambulance remained stuck for over an hour before it ran out of oxygen. The boy's health deteriorated and he couldn't be saved.
 

Eyewitnesses said that the boy's family, who was in the ambulance, requested the police to make way for the vehicle. They alleged that a large number of police officials were present on the stretch, but, they could not help and remained mute spectators.
