Read how the heroics of Indian Railway officers saved the life of an infant

This is a story of heroics of yet another common man of the country. This time it is by the officers of the Indian Railways. The brave act of a train ticket examiner, Mihir of Vijayawada Junction has saved the life of an infant.

On 6th June, a couple was travelling from Yeshwanthpur to Howrah with an ailing child. The child had serious health issues and was travelling with the support of Oxygen cylinders. The couple had arranged for two oxygen cylinders which would be emptied before reaching Vijayawada. This would have been a major danger to the life of that child.

The train ticket examiner of the concerned train, Mihir understood the gravity of the situation and took charge of it. He tried to get the train to reach Vijayawada to ensure the oxygen supply to the child is not interrupted. Soon Mihir contacted his higher authorities to arrange for oxygen cylinders and asked them to consider this as a high priority. The control room reacted immediately to make sure that the cylinders reach them in time.

Mr Jagga Rao, the chief ticketing inspector spoke to the chief controller and decided that the train would not stop anywhere in the middle of the journey before reaching Vijayawada. The train reached Vijayawada in next 20 minutes, thanks to the efforts of both Mihir and Jagga Rao. Mihir arranged another two oxygen cylinders at Bhubaneshwar and also made sure that there is a constant supply of oxygen to the child. They had also arranged oxygen cylinders in Kharagpur and Garden Reach stations. As soon as the train reached Howrah, he arranged for the ambulance. The child was then taken to the hospital for further care.

This effort by the officers of the Indian Railway has been appreciated by every passenger on that train. They also requested the Railway Minister Piyush Goyal to recognise these heroes and award them for their act.
