Let me tell you that a passenger on an IndiGo flight from Delhi to Mumbai fell ill. The cabin crew immediately asked if there was a doctor on the flight. At this, Union Minister Bhagat Krad, who is himself a surgeon, came forward for immediate help. He gave first aid to the patient and gave him injections in the flight emergency kit. In fact, the patient’s BP had dropped significantly but Bhagat started immediate treatment and within 30 minutes the passenger started feeling better. If they did not help then the patient could have died.

“The patient was sweating profusely and her BP was low. I took off her clothes, lifted her legs, massaged her chest and gave her glucose. She felt better after 30 minutes,” says Krad. Are pic.twitter.com/xPrhADxZSG
