Good Samaritans: Good Samaritans save the life of a sunstroke man | Lucknow News

Lucknow: A little sensitivity and awareness can go a long way in saving lives in this harrowing time. This was demonstrated by the presence of mind and quick response of some good Samaritans in the city on Sunday. Their coordinated efforts and quick response helped save the life of a heat-affected laborer named Ghulam Rastogi. Aged around 40, the man has been living in Lucknow for work for the past few days. According to the Hasanganj police, the incident took place around 6 pm on Lucknow University road. Ghulam, who was probably returning from his work somewhere near Gate Number 2 of the University, fell unconscious on the busy street. Senior photojournalist Swapan Paul was among those in traffic who witnessed the incident. Without wasting time, Paul rushed to help. He quickly pulled out his water bottle and helped the man drink, in addition to splashing water over the worker’s head. The scribe was quickly joined by some youths who carried the man to one side of the street and cleared the traffic. One of them informed the city police. Within minutes, two policemen arrived on the scene and provided more drinking water to the thirsty worker.
