Quick thinking by a chief ticket inspector from Vijayawada helped save the life of a two-month-old baby travelling in Yesvantpur-Howrah Duronto Express.
The incident happened on June 5, where the baby boy was travelling along with his father Sagar Kanjilal (30) and mother Banashree in a AC II-tier coach in the Yesvantpur-Howrah train. Officials said, they boarded the train from Yesvantpur and were heading to Vijayawada to refill oxygen and then proceed towards Howrah.
The child was suffering from respiratory problems since its birth and parents have been making the rounds of various
hospitals for treatment. As the baby was travelling with oxygen support. By the time the train was about to reach Tenali (no halt station), the parents discovered that the last oxygen cylinder, of the two they were carrying was about to get over before they could reach Vijayawada railway station.
Parents then alerted the train ticket examiner (TTE) Mihir Kumar for help. He then informed the same to PVS Jagga Rao, a chief ticket inspector in Vijayawada. Meanwhile, tension prevailed in the coach as the oxygen in the cylinder is expected to last only for 30 minutes.
Rao took cognisance of the situation and took immediate action. He contacted the control office at Vijayawada and after continuous monitoring, they managed to ensure that the train reached Vijayawada station within half hour. Medical support was waiting at the station.
As soon as Knajilal and Banashree reached the station with the infant, they were provided with oxygen support and were taken to the railway hospital. Vijayawada divisional railway manager (DRM) R Dhananjayulu has appreciated Jagga Rao’s efforts to save the baby’s life.

Voting multiple times in the same poll using multiple IDs, rating each other IDs' blogs using multiple IDs, etc. are classified as "gross misuse". . This is an advance notice that some of the...
