The city’s notorious and numerous potholes almost claimed another life, when Ramkumar, the 26-year-old software engineer hailing from Coimbatore sustained severe head injuries after he fell from his motorcycle while trying to avoid a pothole. None of the passersby came to the help of Ramkumar, even as he lay on the road, writhing in pain. Fortunately, a professor, who was passing by in an auto after watching a movie, saved the engineer’s life. Ram Kumar, a native of Coimbatore and employee of a private firm, was returning home from work when the incident occurred. Traffic was disrupted as Ram Kumar slipped and sustained head injuries, leading to a seizure. G T Subhash While a crowd gathered around Ram Kumar, who was writhing in pain, G T Subhash, professor of neurology, who was passing-by in an autorickshaw, carried Ram Kumar to Krishna Sevashrama hospital with help from three passersby. Later, Kumar was rushed to NIMHANS in an ambulance for further treatment. Recalling the incident, Dr Subhash said that though people gathered around Kumar, no one came forward to help him. Dr Subhash’s presence of mind to rush the accident victim to a hospital may have saved the life of Ram Kumar, who is now said to be recovering. Ï Had gone for a movie and after the show was over had to wait for my driver to pick me but I thought of taking an auto ride to home. while reaching the circle I found a motorist laying on the road helplessly. even my auto driver did not came forward to help and as a physician felt it is my duty of saving a life and took him to hospital." Residents complained that they complained to the BBMP about the pothole many times, but nothing had been done. Since the pothole posed a threat to motorists, the residents had filled it with debris, but the rain washed away the filling. The Jayanagar police have registered a case and are waiting for Ram Kumar to recover to record his statement.
