With heavy snowfall lashing the streets of Jammu and Kashmir and bringing public movement to the grinding halt, the Indian army has once again earned praises for helping and rescuing people in the Valley.
Recently, a woman in J&K’s Kupwara district gave birth in an Army ambulance while she was on her way to hospital.
The Kalaroos company commander had earlier received a distress call from an ASHA worker, asking for immediate evacuation of a woman in labour in Narikoot, as their ambulance was unable to reach the spot due to inclement weather.
Acting swiftly, an Army vehicle, along with a medical team was sent to Narikoot to evacuate the woman.
However, as the woman’s condition deteriorated, the ASHA worker, accompanying the patient, urged the troops to park the vehicle on the roadside.
With the assistance from the army, the ASHA worker carried out the delivery process inside the vehicle. A baby’s cry from the Gpysy announced her arrival, bring delight and joy to everyone involved in the process.
The mother and the baby was later taken to Kalaroos Hospital.
The army personnel welcomed the child with gifts and also praised the ASHA worker for showing confidence in the army medics.
This comes days after the troops evacuated another woman in labour pain for about 2 km in knee-deep snow to the hospital.
