Officials blame ambulance for Patrick Ekeng’s death
After investigations, the Romanian Ministry of Interior said that Ekeng died due to the Ambulance company’s incompetence and poorly equipped vehicle.
The Romanian MOI said that Cameroon and Dinamo Bucharest midfielder Patrick Ekeng death was due to the inadequately equipped ambulance. Ekeng collapsed seven minutes after coming on in the second half and died two hours later in the hospital.
Reports emerged on Saturday claiming that it took two minutes and 47 seconds for Ekeng to be taken to the ambulance, which they said contained no specialist equipment and was only intended for transportation.
Romanian MOI confirmed these reports in a statement on Sunday saying: “An inquiry into the death of Dinamo Bucharest midfielder Patrick Ekeng has revealed the ambulance company that took him to hospital had faulty equipment and medicine beyond its expiry date in some of its vehicles,”
Private Ambulance company Puls had been suspended for at least 30 days and fined up to £4,185 after investigation of its equipment and the professional qualifications of its staff.
