10-year-old chokes to death as ambulance gets lost

2nd March 2012

Ten-year-old Kane Wade choked to death on a sweet after an ambulance crew were unable to find his address, reports the Daily Mail.

The ambulance, run by the North West Ambulance Service, did not have Kane's address on its satellite navigation system as it had only been constructed three months previously. A spokesman for NWAS said: "We offer our sincere condolences to the family for their tragic loss. We have investigated this incident fully and shared the findings with representatives of the family."
