Kochi, May 5: A person lost his life and 13 others were taken to hospital following symptoms of food poisoning here on Sunday.
The deceased was identified as Nayathode native NP Anil Kumar (30). He was part of the tournament group that had travelled to Ramakkalmedu. Other 13 persons of the group are hospitalised.
The gang had travelled to Ramakkalmedu from Angamaly on Saturday morning and had returned on Sunday morning. The 14 of them then showed symptoms of food poisoning and were admitted to a private hospital in Angamaly.
Anilkumars health condition worsened and the relatives asked to be shifted to a private hospital in Ernakulam. The death occurred midway to the hospital. Those who are admitted said that they cooked their own food during the trip. Hence it is yet to be known how they caught the poison attack. (UNI)
