Narendra Shah, a Mumbai-based businessman, lost his life due to a heart attack at Guwahati Airport


He survived for 20 minutes after the attack, but his family claim he didn’t receive treatment from airport authorities. There was no doctor on call. 'The incident happened at Guwahati’s Gopinath Bordolai International Airport and we are going to sue the airport,' said Shah’s younger son Sagar.
According to airport authorities, however, they failed to save Shah because AAI’s doctors were on leave. They say they hospitalized him, but he was declared dead on arrival.
