SAHARANPUR: A 45-year-old man died on his way to a hospital in Uttar Pradesh’s Saharanpur district after the 108 ambulance carrying him allegedly ran out of oxygen.

The incident happened on Friday.

However, Chief Medical Officer (CMO) of the hospital BS Sodhi said that the allegation levelled by the family was wrong.

The deceased’s family also alleged negligence on the part of the driver of the ambulance.

Moreover, a helper in the ambulance also admitted that there was shortage of oxygen in the emergency vehicle.
