Odisha Chief Minister Naveen Patnaik praised Rayagada superintendent of police (SP) Saravana Vivek M, who is also a doctor, for saving the lives of three accident victims in the district.
“Appreciate the exemplary act of humanity by Rayagada SP Saravana Vivek M to save the lives of accident victims. The doctor SP did a yeoman service by providing timely medical help to the road accident victims on his way back from official tour, saving the precious lives,” Odisha Chief Minister Naveen Patnaik tweeted.
Vivek was returning from Gunupur to Rayagada after an official tour when he saw three men lying unconscious on the road. They were going from Mukundpur to Kolnara when their motorcycle slipped on an under-construction road in Kailashkota ghat leaving them injured.
The victims, who had been lying at the spot for more than 15 minutes with severe head injuries, were provided first aid by Vivek and later taken to Kolnara Community Health Centre (CHC) in his official vehicle.
At the CHC, he started their treatment without wasting any time but as the condition of one Sushant Kondagiri deteriorated due to profuse bleeding, the SP made arrangements to shift him to District Headquarters Hospital with police escort.
From DHH, Kondagiri was shifted to Laxman Naik Medical College and Hospital, Koraput. The two other injured were discharged after treatment, hospital sources said.
