A woman died on Friday in Mirpurkhas after her family was not provided an ambulance to shift her to a hospital in Hyderabad.

The woman, Kamla, was taken to the Civil Hospital Mirpurkhas after she suffered a heart attack, the family said.

“Doctors told us to take her to Hyderabad,” Kamla’s husband told SAMAA TV. He said the doctors didn’t even look at her.

“Civil Hospital didn't give us an ambulance,” the deceased’s husband said, adding that the ambulance drivers kept asking for Rs4,000 to shift the patient.

The family protested with her body outside the Civil Hospital Mirpurkhas. The hospital administration has constituted a committee to look into the matter.

A similar case was reported 20 days ago. Two people had lost their lives after not being provided with an ambulance by the administration of the same hospital. The Health DG had suspended the civil surgeon, medical superintendent, assistant medical superintendent, two on-duty doctors and an ambulance driver, over the matter.
