Sundergarh: A pregnant woman on Thursday was carried on a cot for 2 kms to board an ambulance, which allegedly failed to reach the patient due to lack of motorable road in Hatituku village under Lephripara Tehsil of Sundargarh district.
A six-month pregnant woman of Hatituku village reportedly sustained burn injuries while cooking this morning. She was rescued by her family members who also called the 102 ambulance services to take her to the nearby hospital for treatment.
The ambulance, however, was unable to reach Hatituku village due to lack of motorable roads following which the woman’s family members carried her on a cot for 2 kms. She was then taken to the hospital for treatment by an ambulance.
Locals alleged that the concerned officials are yet to pay heed to their longstanding demands for a motorable road to the village.
