This just came up on a few sites -

What happens when you die on holiday in Switzerland?
A fall on a hiking path or a sudden heart attack could bring your Swiss holiday to an abrupt end. How difficult is it to ensure your mortal remains reach home?

Indian retiree Susanta Mukhopadhya had no idea that his life would be turned upside down on his holiday to Switzerland. He had booked a 12-day coach trip through Europe and was on his second day in the Alpine nation when disaster struck. His 64-year-old wife collapsed on a walk near Leysin in the west of the country. The tour leader, an Indian woman, had no idea what to do.

“When my wife collapsed on the road, the tour representative was trying to call Bombay for further instructions. She had no local contacts or the phone number of a hospital,” Mukhopadhya told

Luckily a Swiss couple noticed the commotion and called the medical emergency services. Within 15 minutes the paramedics were at the scene.

“It was only then that I realised the seriousness of my wife's situation. She had suffered a sudden, massive heart attack,” says Mukhopadhya.

She was transported to the University Hospital in Lausanne an hour away where she died a few hours later.

“I have no doubt that my wife received the best medical care possible, but the real tragedy occurred after her death. All that I faced was horrendous,” says Mukhopadhya.
