RTC Bus Driver Saves Passengers Lifes, Despite Getting Heart AttackFebruary 04, 2017 11:44
In order to save passengers life, a bus driver risked his own life in Mahbubnagar district. An RTC driver suffered a heart attack but stopped the bus at the depot in order to save passengers life.
42-year-old M. Madhusudan Reddy was an RTC driver. He got a heart attack when the bus was around 200 yards from the bus station but he made sure he drove passengers safely to the bus station.
After parking the bus he collapsed in his seat. Madhusudan Reddy hailed from Pebberu. He was working as a driver at the Mahbubnagar depot.
On Thursday he left for Narwa from Mahbubnagar. When the bus was around 200 meters away from Narwa bus station he started getting pain.
“He said that he was having some pain but drove till he reached the bus station. After stopping the vehicle he bent down. We thought he was checking some fault, but when we went he was unconscious,” another driver who was in the vehicle said.
Madhusudan was immediately rushed to a nearby hospital where doctors declared him brought dead. Depot manager G. Rajagopal said "if Madhusudan had not been careful he would have lost control of the bus. Any mistake could have put the passengers at risk. But he risked himself to save the passengers."
Doctors said that "Madhusudan could have suffered a mild heart attack initially, but when he continued driving, it became massive and could have led to death. If a person suffers even a mild heart attack he should stop physical activity immediately. Driving a bus involves a lot of strain which exerts pressure on the heart."
Madhusudan Reddy is survived by his wife and two children.
