Mumbai, Dec 31 (IANS) New Year’s eve festivities can take an unwanted turn but fret not if alcohol gets the better of you — help is just a call away.
Home healthcare startup Care24 offers a service where an ambulance-cum-van will be sent armed with a hangover kit.
“People can opt for this service by calling Care24’s hotline number 022-399-67670. After receiving a call, Care24 will send a Care Van to help people in an inebriated state to get back on their feet. These vans will be stationed close to prominent city pubs in areas around Bandra and Lower Parel,” a statement said.
“Pub owners have been informed about this facility in advance so they can avail of it before things get unpleasant and a New Year’s eve party becomes a dampener,” the statement added.
“December 31 is all about indulgence and drunken revelry. But a little too much and the party can become a nightmare. We just want to reach out and reassure Mumbaiites that there’s someone to take care of them and their loved ones when the situation gets out of hand,” Ankit Agrawal of Care24 said.
