Pune, 9th August 2021: A two-year-old boy’s breath returned after getting immediate cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) treatment by a traveling ticket examiner (TTE) on Sunday in a running train.

Ticket inspector Rajendra Katkar was on duty on Sunday in special train number 01040 Gondia – Kolhapur Express. He was doing regular checking when the train left Pune station. When the train reached around Lonand, he passed through coach number S-7.

He heard the cries and shouts of the people. Katkar immediately ran towards them and saw that the two-year-old boy was unconscious and his family members were crying.

The TTE was trained in giving first aid so seeing the seriousness of the matter, he did not waste time and pressed the nose of the unconscious child and breathed several times in mouth with his mouth, due to which the child’s breathing started again. And everybody heaved a sigh of relief.

The family and other passengers thanked TTE Katkar a lot for this commendable work.

Divisional Railway Manager (DRM) Renu Sharma said that the work done by Ticket Inspector Rajendra Katkar is highly commendable and Pune Railway Division is proud of him for his humanitarian work.
