India reports one of the maximum numbers of accidents in the world. Whether the accidents happen in the city or on highways, they can be very dangerous and life-threatening. Most people do not help the accident victims because they do not want to get involved in the police investigations. However, helping an accident victim timely can be a difference between their life or death. Here, we have a video in which we can see famous politician Navjot Singh Sidhu helping an accident victim.
The video is uploaded on YouTube by The Tribune. In the video, it seems like there has been an accident between a Maruti Suzuki Dzire and a vendor’s rickshaw. The accident happened on Patiala-Sirhind road. Navjot Singh stops his Honda City on the side of the road and gets out to check on the victim. It seems like the accident victim was the driver of the rickshaw.
Any immediate injuries are not visible to the victim, but it does look like he is in pain. The politician calls another vehicle and seats the victim and gives him some money for the hospital treatment. Then we can see Navjot Singh Sidhu talking to the doctor over a call while travelling in his car.
The doctor says that there is a fracture and they will be doing further X-Rays to confirm it. Navjot Singh says that he has given some cash to the victim and he will pay for the rest of the treatment. He says that he will call back the doctor after two days to know the condition of the accident victim. The video was originally shared by Navjot Singh Sidhu himself on his Facebook page. It already has around 95,000 views and people are appreciating the help done by Navjot Singh Sidhu.
We still do not know how exactly the accident happened. We can see the Maruti Suzuki Dzire on the side of the road and it is badly damaged. The driver was fine and he also went with the victim to the hospital. It seems like the car that went to the hospital was a Scorpio and it belonged to Navjot Singh Sidhu’s convoy.
It is important that the victim reaches the hospital timely so that the doctor can do a check-up and give the necessary treatment. In an accident, helping the victim should be the priority. This is because the ambulance can take some time to reach. Moreover, if a motorcycle is involved, then you should not take off the helmet because that can increase the damage to the neck and spine. It is better that the doctors do this job as after the accident it is the helmet that is supporting the neck. What you can do is open the visor so that the rider can breathe fresh air and if the rider feels like it, he can remove the helmet himself. Some helmets also come with emergency quick release systems that will remove the cheek pads from the helmet and then the rider’s head can come out easily.
