The organisation which is silently working to protect us is the Indian Army. They have shown once again that they are always there for the people as they went beyond their call of duty to rescue nine people including a pregnant woman, who were stranded in an ambulance at Nastachung Pass, Kupwara District of Jammu and Kashmir.
The Northern Command- Indian Army shared the pictures and the post on Social Media on 22 February 2017. Here is the post:
Army Evacuates Ambulance Stranded At Nastachung Pass.
An ambulance carrying nine people including two patients: a pregnant lady and a 15-year-old boy under postoperative recovery were stranded at Nastachung Pass in Kupwara District of Jammu and Kashmir due to landslide at about 7:30 PM on Tuesday.
15-year-old Madsoor Ahmed, son of Maksoor Ahmed, a resident of village Parada, was being moved from Tangdhar to Chowkibal after undergoing surgery for a stomach ailment. He was accompanied by Waheed Mir Age, a 24-year-old woman from Tangdhar being treated for anaemia in her advanced stage of pregnancy. They got stranded at Nastachung Pass in Tangdhar Tehsil with seven others in an ambulance. The ambulance could not move to Chowkibal or return to Tangdhar because of landslides on either side. The dropping temperatures at an altitude of 10,000 feet were affecting the patients severely and could have been fatal for the anaemic patient, had it not been for the swift reaction by the Army Rescue Team. The team not only cleared the way for the Ambulance to return to Tangdhar but also provided medical relief and care to the patients.
The Logical Indian salutes the Indian Army once again for rescuing people stranded in the Nastachung pass. Be it snow, fire, air, water, Indian Army is always there to save us
