Mumbai (Maharashtra) [India], Apr 29 ( ANI ): A 24x7 bike ambulance services, equipped with a first-aid kit and oxygen cylinder, introduced by Lodha Foundation on Sunday in Mumbai to deal with medical emergencies amid heavy traffic.

A Mumbai-based charitable trust launched the free bike ambulance service for swift movement through traffic in case of an emergency.

The foundation backed by a local lawmaker has come up with the idea of a bike ambulance service, which will carry patients to hospitals free of cost in order to make them cover long distances in short period of time during the golden hour.

The service is unique in its approach as sometimes four-wheeler ambulances get stuck in traffic.

A politician and founder of the charitable trust, Mangal Prabhat Lodha said that the ambulance was capable of entering narrow lanes and it had all the facilities that a normal ambulance have including, medical kit, stretcher and oxygen cylinder, along with the provision of a space for doctors to sit at the back.

Such ambulances are not a new concept in India.

Motorcycle-ambulance has saved lives of hundreds of people, in remote areas of Chhattisgarh, since the services were launched last July.

In the cities of Bengaluru and Hyderabad too, the services have proved a boon for patients, especially for accident victims. ( ANI )
