Indian pharmacist killed in New York snowstorm.
Kranthi Kumar Hinge ( 30) suffered a stroke as he cleared snow to park his vehicle outside his house in New York on Saturday ( Sunday morning in India).
According to North American Telugu Association ( NATA) adviser Pailla Malla Reddy, Kranthi entered his house, complaining of chest pain. He was immediately rushed to the hospital. " Although he was conscious while being shifted into the ambulance, he couldn't make it to the hospital," Reddy said.
The doctors at the hospital said Kranthi already had chest pain, which was aggravated by the severe cold conditions.
The sudden death of Kranthi has left his eight- months pregnant wife Vani in a state of shock. She, too, has been admitted to the hospital and is being treated for trauma. His brother Nageswara Rao Hinge, also a New York resident, has been informed about the incident, Reddy said.
A pall of gloom descended on Kranthi's house at Nandigama village. His father H. Lingamurthy, a farmer, told the media that Kranthi had got married three years ago and had moved to New York soon after. " Since then, he has not come to the country," he said. Kranthi's paternal uncle H. Muralidhar left for the US on Monday to bring his body to India.
Vani's parents T. Surender Rao and T. Kasturi of Oglapur village of Atmakur block are also in a state of shock. They appealed to the state government to help bring the body of Kranthi to India at the earliest.
Meanwhile, NATA and the entire Telugu community in New York mourned the death of Kranthi.
After hearing the news, NATA community services team immediately started coordinating with the family. " The NATA team is on the site and helping the family," Reddy said.
