An Indian marathoner says Indian officials weren't there to give her water during her 26-mile Olympic race last week.
O.P. Jaisha told reporters Monday that she ran the event in "scorching heat." She collapsed soon after crossing the finish line and had to be taken to a nearby hospital.
The BBC quotes her as saying: "I fainted after the race. I was administered glucose, I thought I would die."
