news4europe.eu – (efe-pa).- A Brazilian tourist died Monday after suffering a cardiorespiratory arrest outside Santiago International Airport and was unable to get medical attention in time – because the roads in and out were blocked by taxi drivers protesting against Uber, Cabify, and their apps for picking up passengers.
