Ambulance failure: Pregnant woman carried on bike


Nabarangpur: In yet another case of ambulance failure, a pregnant woman was carried on a motorcycle from a remote village in the district to the hospital after the vehicle driver failed to reach the pick-up location on Friday.

The incident took place today morning at Puralubhata village under Jharigaon police limits in the district after the woman developed labour pain and her family contacted the 108 ambulance service.

However, the driver expressed his inability to reach the village due to a non-motorable road.

With no options left the family members carried the woman on a bike for about two kilometres where the ambulance was stationed. She was then shifted to the hospital in the ambulance, said a source.
