A 24-year-old interning doctor (a final year MBBS student) has helped a woman give birth to a baby boy on train with instructions from his seniors through WhatsApp, according to a report in TOI.
The incident happened on the Ahmedabad-Puri Express in India.
24-year-old Vipin Bhagwanrao Khadse isn’t a qualified doctor, but when a co-passenger Chitralekha went into labour on the Ahmedabad-Puri Express, he decided to help. Chitralekha was in a lot of pain and was bleeding profusely, but Vipin kept calm and uploaded a picture on a Whatsapp group of doctors.
A senior resident at the Nagpur based government medical college and hospital where Vipin studies came to the rescue and a baby boy was delivered after careful coordination and some help from a midwife.
Reportedly, the train was about 30km from Nagpur when Chitralekha's relatives pulled the chain to halt the train near Wardha junction.
Khadse says the delivery was complicated as the baby's shoulder was hanging out.
Khadse uploaded a photo in a WhatsApp group of doctors for help and a senior resident Shikha Malik guided him on the phone to conduct the delivery.
The student has received a lot of love on social media as such incidents continue to restore faith in humanity..
