Doctors save life aboard flight to Karachi

Doctors save life aboard flight to Karachi

Contributed by Major Saif-Ur-Rehman Khilji

I was flying from Islamabad to Karachi last night and there was a girl onboard with a serious condition. First of all the stretcher took more seats than the patient had booked, but the other passengers managed it somehow.

When we were on the way, the captain announced that the patient needs medical assistance and he requested all the doctors sitting in the plane to contact seat number 54 where the patient was lying. What a great feeling it was to see around 15 people raising from their seats and rushing towards the patient. They were all doctors and half of them were women.

They gave immediate assistance to that patient. What a fabulous time it was to see all the doctors discussing and figuring out what to do. They helped the patient and showed that Pakistan is within everyone of us. These people…they are Pakistan. The twinkling eyes of the cute sick girl were saying, “I am proud to be Pakistani”.
