Rudraprayag (Uttarakhand) [India], June 18 (ANI): A 52-year-old tourist from Mumbai lost his life in Kedarnath due to lack of oxygen and inappropriate conduct of helicopter renting companies on Tuesday.
The tourist who hailed from Mumbai suffered from bad health due to which the doctors advised him to be taken immediately to a hospital in the city.
The police personnel requested the helicopter companies to carry the ill person to a hospital but they refused.
More than half an hour passed in this which led to the death of the tourist and an altercation also broke out between the police personnel and officials of the helicopter renting companies.
