New Delhi, Aug 1 : In a shocking incident that exposes Delhi government hospital's apathy, a 17-yr-old boy Jeet Ram gasping for life died on Sunday after waiting for two hours in an ambulance for medical attention.
This happened right outside the emergency wards at Lok Nayak Jayaprakash Narayan Hospital Hospital in Delhi where callous doctors kept on refusing patient's admission on the ground that “no bed was available”.
Jeet Ram's father Shriram had brought his son in a CATS ambulance. For two hours, he practically begged the doctors to treat his son, but nobody listened. He then called the police and somebody outside the hospital informed the media.
As media cameras reached the spot , the shame-faced doctors were forced to ultimately admit the boy but by then, Jeet Ram had taken his last breath.
Precious two hours had elapsed by that time.
The boy, a resident of Narela, was suffering from high fever and was referred by a private hospital in that area.
