An old man died while waiting to take a bus in Kerala, unaware of the strike called by the Kerala State Road Transport Corporation (KSRTC) employees. The incident took place in Thiruvananthapuram on Wednesday.
64-year-old Surendran had waited for several hours at bus stop hoping to board a government bus. He fainted on the spot and locals rushed him to the hospital. However, Surendran died on the way to the hospital.
A woman waiting at the bus stop did administer first aid to Surendran, but he could not be saved.
The incident occurred in the heart of the city during a five-hour lightning strike by the KSRTC employees.
In the meanwhile, the KSRTC strike brought the city to a standstill. Employees parked the buses at several places in the city leading to severe traffic snarls. Many passengers, including patients, had a harrowing time waiting for the buses.
