A cardiac patient lost his life after a Sindh government health facility’s available ambulance failed to start in Sanghar area of Sindh.

The patient, the son of a police official, was shifted to the rural healthcare centre in Shahpur Chakar after he suffered cardiac arrest. Upon arrival there, a medic on duty asked the patient’s family to immediately shift him to Nawabshah over lack of facilities.

He lost his life after the available ambulance of the health centre failed to start.

The patient lay there struggling for life as citizens and policemen kept pushing the vehicle for 30 to 45 minutes in an effort to get it started but to no avail. He was earlier brought to the rural healthcare centre in a police van.
