A horror story about me

  1. 1. A Horror story about me:<br />I am sorry don’t have pictures to share. But this is a real horror story mine encounter some where during 1987 middle east.<br />
  2. 2. On one fine evening <br />I had just returned from my evening walk.<br /> following my supper and watching BBC <br /> I being a medical personnel cares for <br />about 1000 add soldiers.<br />One of the troop was on field exercise<br /> a soldier got chest pain and got message.<br />That he is actually seriously ill<br />and feeling distress and breathless.<br />In <br />
  3. 3. After a negotiations with air force <br />Decides to shift him to base command <br />Hospital. When helicopter arrived I went <br />With my medical kits and tool. <br />After examining him with portable <br />Defibrillator, found his was stable <br />cardiac wise but very anxious and I gave <br />Simple first aid including Oxygen therapy <br />And reassurance. <br />
  4. 4. We took off from desert in the middle <br />Night that too on a new moon day.<br />All of a sudden the helicopter stopped <br />on the way. On seeing, it had landed on a<br />Pinnacle of hill and people were rushing <br />Towards us with weapons in their hands.<br />We were surprised especially me being <br />unarmed and an expatriate. My heart <br />Started pounding and thought end has<br /> come near! <br />
  5. 5. Later on enquiry came to know that it was<br />Pilot’s maiden flight and wanted to show off <br />To his villagers, but I was further panicked as <br />my patient started yelling a me with agony.<br />I told the pilot he situation and asked him to<br />take off and reach the command hospital as<br />soon as possible. Reluctantly he took off only <br />to land after an hour though the distance<br /> could have been covered in 15 minutes! <br />
  6. 6. Some how the patient and safely landed <br />In the hospital and it needless to say we <br />both were well and after a few days the <br />soldier in question was out of hospital and <br />Returned to me to greet and thank me. <br />
  7. 7. A few later a similar nature of thing <br />Happened and the pilot lost life and the <br />Fighter plain perished, as the pilot was <br />new and wanted to show off his skills to <br />his tribal people and paid the price.<br />
  8. 8. Yet another similar episode happened<br />in which the pilot was recently <br />Promoted and assumed first pilot of <br />an civil airplane, which was carrying <br />more than 200 civilians who were <br />returning following school vacation <br />from Cairo and lost control and <br />crashed in sea including the pilot who<br />misjudged and was responsible for <br />The tragedy. <br />
  9. 9. Moral is a over confidence can kill self <br />And others. So don’t be proud and be <br />humble and sincere to your job and God<br />will guide you to safety. This episode has <br />Left me a very bad scar on my psyche and<br />since I too learnt a lesson and remain <br />Vigilance always. (I was not having the <br />Camera and can not attach pictures) <br />
