A passenger fainted at Delhi airport last week when she was not allowed to board Air India’s Delhi-Vadodara flight due to being late, with relatives alleging she was received no immediate medical assistance.

The airline, however, denied the accusation, saying a doctor arrived “immediately” on the scene but the passenger was already feeling better.

A video circulating on social media shows a middle-aged woman lying on the ground near the gates and her relatives preparing water for her.
