Written 3 years ago by Newsroom


The Government is being urged to order an examination of the entire ambulance fleet following a fatal fire in Kildare.

Pensioner Christopher Byrne from Suncroft died after the ambulance he was in burst into flames at Naas General Hospital yesterday afternoon while two paramedics were injured.

Health Minister Simon Harris said he was ‘numb’ when he heard about the fire.

Paul Bell of SIPTU says the possibility of a widespread problem must be examined.
