IAF Woman Officer Saves Three Civilian Lives

Memaura, Lucknow. On 02 Apr 2016 at about 1000h, three passengers (Mr. Vinod, Mr. Sarvesh and Mr. Kishan of Khatola Village) on their Passion Pro Bike bearing registration no. UP 32 FQ 3445 met with a road traffic accident on highway near Air Force Station Memaura. All three sustained injuries which were life threatening in nature. Flying Officer Neha Gurnani, an Indian Air Force officer undergoing Basic Course in Air Defence College, Air Force Station Memaura, on her way back from Lucknow town found these three injured personnel lying in pool of blood with no assistance extended by any passing vehicle or people gathered around. On her initiative, assessing the gravity of situation, she persuaded the owner of a Scorpio (Reg No. UP 32 FT 3968) parked nearby to take these mortally injured personnel to nearby medical post within Air Force Station Memaura. They were attended by Senior Medical Officer Flight Lieutenant Mitul Sinh. On preliminary examination, it was found that Mr. Sarvesh, one of the injured, had severe head injury, dropping BP and no pulse. Due to timely medical support provided in the form of first aid and critical basic life support in first golden hour of injury, three lives could be saved. After stabilizing, Flt Lt Mitul Sinh and two Indian Air Force medical personnel moved the patients in their state of the art ambulance to King George Medical College. Enroute one of the patients suffered two seizures, was given Cardio Pulmonary Resuscitation and revived. Due to timely and prompt action by Flying Officer Neha Gurnani and Flight Lieutenant Mitul Sinh, these three precious lives could be saved.

Glad that the three bikers survived, thanks to Flying Officer Gurnani.

On the other note, the author mentioned that the three passengers were mortally wounded. You would want to correct that as anyone who gets mortally wounded, cannot survive.
