Even her desperate attempt to resuscitate her dying husband by breathing into his mouth went in vain and finally he succumbed to the coronavirus on his wife's lap.
The tragic incident took place at Agra of India on Monday. A still image of it went viral on social media platforms, representing the dire scenario of oxygen crisis in India.
According to an India Today report, Renu Singhal, a resident of Awas Vikas Sector 7 in Uttar Pradesh's Agra, had brought Ravi Singhal (47) to the Sarojini Naidu Medical College (SNMC) and Hospital in Agra after he experienced breathlessness.
Renu Singhal took an auto from her residence in Sector 7 and reached the government facility.
As his condition deteriorated, in desperate attempts to save him, Renu even tried to give mouth-to-mouth resuscitation to him. But, Ravi died gasping for breath.
Reports of Covid-19 patients dying due to the shortage of oxygen and beds in the hospitals have become common in the city.
Overwhelmed due to an unprecedented rise in the number of virus-infected patients, hospitals, running out of medical oxygen and beds, are now turning people away.
