“Today morning around 9.45 when I was rushing towards my office at Elphinstone, I happened to see a man lying in a pool of blood, unconscious and still bleeding from his face, just next to Elphinstone station near Shiv Temple.

The cause of injury was not known, but it seemed pretty serious. As usual, there were a lot of people around him but no one helped him. I too tried to ignore him but could not, I gathered some courage and asked the people standing there to help me. I asked for a bucket of water from the Shiv Temple to splash on his face, borrowed a chair from a nearby shanty and made him sit. He was still semi-conscious, completely disoriented and worst, he was still bleeding heavily around his jaw.

I immediately called 108 for help, the person attending the helpline was very courteous and helpful. He asked for my exact location, my name & number and kept my call on hold to arrange an ambulance. However, the call for some reason got disconnected. The helpline guy called me again but now there was a conference call with the Ambulance driver to know my exact location. The ambulance arrived in next 5-7 minutes. The doctor in the Ambulance asked me to accompany them as someone needs to take the responsibility for the admission process at the Government hospital.

A guy named Raviraj Sontakke offered to accompany me to the nearest hospital which was KEM. We reached the KEM hospital, the guy was immediately attended by the doctors in the Emergency/Casualty ward. We were made to sign few forms, and we stood in a couple of queues to fill admission forms. A police officer filed an FIR on the spot at the hospital. During all this, the patient was attended and taken care of by the hospital staff. All the procedure, from calling for the Ambulance to that person being admitted to the hospital with formalities took not more than an hour.

The police ensured there won’t be any harassment or unnecessary calls and in fact, appreciated our actions. I was back on my office desk by 11.15 am, getting back into my routine job.


The only reason for writing this long post is to make people aware that it doesn’t take much to help people in need, specially accident victims.
THE HOSPITAL ADMISSION PROCESS IS SMOOTH.
THE POLICE AND DOCTORS ARE HELPFUL .
NO UNNECESSARY HARASSMENTS.
Friends just a general appeal to all of you go ahead and help that injured person, help that accident victim, your help of one hour can make a lot of difference in that person’s life.
A Big shout to #KEMHOSPITAL for smooth process. THANK YOU #108HELPLINE. A BIG THANK YOU TO #MUMBAIPOLICE for nearly zero harassment.

Request you all to please share my this post to create awareness and make Mumbai a better place to live in.

PS. I didn’t even spend a single rupee from my pocket for the above all.”
