A 2-year-old child from Kancheepuram district in Tamil Nadu fell seriously ill while on a flight with her family traveling from San Francisco to Chennai.
Tamil Nadu Chief Minister MK Stalin, on Friday, pledged ₹10 lakh to facilitate the transfer of a 2-year-old child currently receiving medical treatment in Turkey back to Chennai via an air ambulance.
In a statement released by the Tamil Nadu Department of Information and Public Relations, it was mentioned that the child’s parents had exhausted their savings in providing emergency medical care for their daughter.
