A big disaster was averted when two teenagers, Rohit Singh (17) and his cousin Nitin, alerted the Delhi Police Control room of smoke coming out of an aircraft’s engine, saving the lives of 194 passengers.

“We received a call at 7:40 PM about the fire on the aeroplane. We immediately verified the caller, and the agencies of the concerned flight were informed, following which the flight made an emergency landing on Runway 28,” says Sanjay Bhatia, Deputy Commissioner of Police, as reported by The Indian Express.

The police informed the Central Industrial Security Force at Terminal 1D which conveyed the message to AOCC (Airport Operations Control Center) and ATC (Air Traffic Control). As soon as the incident was reported, a full emergency was declared. All necessary precautions were taken, and the ambulance and fire safety were kept on standby to handle any untoward situation.

The aeroplane made an emergency landing, and all the passengers were accommodated on subsequent flights.

GoAir flight G8-557 flying from Delhi to Bengaluru took off at 7:28 PM from Indira Gandhi Airport and made an emergency landing at 7:53 PM at Delhi airport itself.

Rohit and Nitin were sitting on the terrace when they saw an aeroplane fly over their heads. The boys were shocked to see the tail of the aeroplane on fire. Rohit was not able to discern what he had seen and called out to his father, Navneet Singh. Without wasting any time, his father called the Delhi Police.


The Logical Indian appreciates Rohit, Nitin and Mr Navneet Singh for taking prompt action to inform the police, helping save the lives of all the passengers and crew.
