Deputy director of health saves railway official’s life aboard train

01 Nov

On Thursday, deputy director of health Dr Sanjay Jaiswal turned out to be a Good Samartian when he saved the life of Central Railway divisional engineer (DEN), headquarters, aboard Mumbai-Nagpur Duronto Express.

According to sources, DEN KA Farooqui started feeling dizzy in the wee hours while travelling in A1 coach of the train. He was sweating and vomiting. His pulse rate also slowed down.

At around 5.30am near Pulgaon station, the TTE concerned woke up Dr Jaiswal, who was travelling in the same coach. When Dr Jaiswal examined Farooqui, he suggested admission in Wardha. “The official looked pale and it was an emergency case,” said Dr Jaiswal.

Dr Jaiswal called up regional manager Dr Uke of Maharashtra Emergency Medical Services (MEMS), a project of the state government under the National Rural Health Mission (NRHM), who immediately arranged for an ambulance at Wardha station.

When the train reached Wardha, the ambulance was ready and Farooqui was immediately shifted to ICU in Sevagram Hospital.

Central Railway PRO PD Patil confirmed that Farooqui had taken ill but his condition is reported to be stable and he has reached Nagpur.
