WATCH heroic Indian doctor rescue Covid-19 patient who attempted to jump FOUR FLOORS down from hospital building

WATCH heroic Indian doctor rescue Covid-19 patient who attempted to jump FOUR FLOORS down from hospital building
Video shows an Indian doctor in full protective gear risking his own life as he climbed out of the window to save a distraught Covid-19 patient who wanted to jump to their near-certain death after escaping from the hospital.

The incident took place at the Netaji Subhash Chandra Bose Medical College Hospital in the central city of Jabalpur. According to the hospital’s social media account, a Covid-19 patient had crawled out of the fourth-floor window and “tried to jump.”

Police were quickly called in, and people brought out a cloth with which to try and catch the man. However, after a conversation with doctors and officers, the jumper had a change of heart and decided not to risk his life, the hospital said.

जबलपुर। नेताजी सुभाष चन्द्र बोस मेडिकल कॉलेज अस्पताल में रविवार की सुबह उस वक्त हड़कम्प की स्थिति निर्मित हो गयी, जब कोविण-19 वार्ड की खिड़की पर एक मरीज आकर बैठ गया और कूदने का प्रयास करने लगा। मेडिकल परिसर में उपस्थित स्टाफ और अन्य लोगों ने मरीज को ऐसा करते देखा तो तत्काल गढ़ा थाना पुलिस को खबर कर दी। खबर लगते ही गढ़ा थाना प्रभारी राकेश तिवारी स्टॉफ के साथ मौके पर पहुंचे और मरीज को समझाईश दी। पुलिस और चिकित्सकों की समझाईश के बाद मरीज का हदृय परिवर्तन हो गया और उसने खिड़की से कूदने का अपना फैसला बदल दिया। हालांकि इस दौरान मेडिकल परिसर में काफी देर तक हड़कम्प की स्थिति बनी रही। थाना प्रभारी राकेश तिवारी ने बताया कि मरीज सुबह 8 बजे के करीब खिड़की पर जाकर बैठ गया था, जिसे समझाईश दी गयी तो बाद में वह कोविड़ वार्ड में चला गया।

The patient remained sitting outside of the window until a doctor in full protective gear climbed out and helped his colleague drag the man back into the building. The rescue was met with cheers and applause, as the heroic doctor waved his hand before returning inside.

Although the man’s motives were unclear, his stunt may be viewed by some as a suicide attempt. Various research shows that the Covid-19 pandemic has led to an increase in mental illnesses and suicides in India due to anxiety and depression.
