  • P.S
    Govindarajan v General Manager ,
    Integral Coach Factory & Ors

    1993(2) CPJ 1211 (TN SCDRC) 

      

    The complainant’s wife suffered a
    massive heart attack and died soon
    after on that very day. The claim
    against the opposite parties was that
    they sent an  ambulance van
    without the Oxygen Cylinder and had
    she been put on the Oxygen while in
    this van she would have survived. The
    commission did not accept this
    contention, for within 10 minutes she
    had been taken to the hospital, where
    the best treatment was provided but in
    vain. The reason for non provision of
    oxygen cylinder in the ambulance was
    leaking cylinder due to which it had
    been sent for repairs, hence no
    negligence inferred.
