Hyderabad: In the noble quest to ensure that people, particularly the elderly citizens who get injured in road mishaps or fall sick, �are able to reach nearby hospitals, almost immediately, a city-based organization, going by the wonderful name ‘Good Samaritans India’ has started a free bike ambulance service exclusively for abandoned elderly in the city. A small closed cabin fixed to one side of the bike acts as a mini ambulance, which is spacious enough to hold a saline stand and oxygen cylinder.
