According to Indian media reports, a soccer player from India has died after being refused treatment after colliding with an opposing goalkeeper.
Mahesh Thepa, 27, was refused treatment in three different hospitals because they claimed that no beds were available for him.
He was transported to the different hospitals on motorcycle because no ambulance was available at the time of the collision. Thepa was playing for Raikatpara Sports Association at the time of his death.
The All India Football Federation did not comment on Thepa's death.
Thepa's death makes it the second soccer related death in India in the past four months.
In March, D. Venkatesh died after suffering a cardiac arrest on the pitch. Again, no ambulance was available as he was taken to the hospital on a three wheeled auto rickshaw.
