This Lecturer From University College, Mangalore Misses Her Train to Help a Patient: Know what Happened

Hemavathi, a Kannada lecturer at University College, Nelyadi, was to travel from Bantwal to Bengaluru on September 28 and waiting to board the train with two heavy bags with her. There was a loud thud behind her. A man in his 50s had collapsed. Hemavathi rushed to help him without any second thoughts. Even though she would miss her train, Hemavathi opted to help the man in need and proved that humanity stills exists.

Hemavathi later informed that “I rushed to help him. He was sweating and had turned cold. I wiped his face and started asking people to help me. Everyone was busy rushing towards the train. One man who held his hand told me that he was dead and that I should take him to the government hospital. I prayed, for I knew he was alive. I tried calling for an ambulance. Once the train departed, there was hardly anyone around. I don’t know from where I got the strength, I picked up all four bags, including his, held him and went outside the station. I found an autorickshaw and headed to a private hospital in Bantwal. He gave the number of his father in-law, a doctor, who made arrangements to shift him to KMC Hospital, Mangalore. I was scared as everyone said he would not survive. His cousin arrived and they left to Mangalore. I left for Bengaluru by bus the next day,” she said.

Later the patient informed that his father-in-law reached out to Dr Padmanabha Kamath, HoD of cardiology, KMC Hospital. His medical team revived the patient after a cardiac instability.

On October 17, Hemavathi was in KMC with her mother who incidentally had an appointment with Dr Kamath. The businessman too had come there to meet the doctor. Dr Kamath was quick to recognise her and along with Dr Jeedhu Radhakrishnan, consultant, emergency medicine, awarded her a certificate of appreciation.
