Road accidents are undoubtedly the most frequent and, overall, the cause of the most damages, not just of vehicles but of most precious lives. We all enjoy the freedom of movement given to us on road for driving but none of us utilize our freedom to reach out to someone injured in an accident and laying on road bleeding.
The first hour after the accident is called the ‘golden hour’ instant and proper first aid given to road accident victims during this hour increases the chance of survival manifold and reduce the severity of injuries.
“A stitch in time saves nine”, the timely care means the difference between life and death. The onlookers and the other passersby instead of lending a helping hand often try to avoid the situation; the reason being that no one wants to get involved in a police case or get into troubles of legalities. Many deaths and impact of injuries can be prevented with a timely help.
This story is about Mr. Sundeep Gupta a resident of Rajasthan, who once witnessed a very tragic road accident in which a man died bleeding because no one attended to him on time. This jolted and left Mr. Gupta in pain. He did not sit back and cry about it rather he took charge and decided to do something about it! He made a commitment to himself that he will save as many lives that he possibly can. A kind and compassionate man with zeal to do something for the society converted his “Fortuner” Vehicle into an ambulance to carry the injured people to hospital. He is a savior of many lives! He saved many kids, who could have died in a school bus accidents, he also saved a young man who encountered a bike accident and many such cases.
It is his determination “Zidd” that saved many lives. Sandeep Gupta you are a real life Hero!
