An Army doctor stationed at Command Hospital Western Command Chandimandir in Chandigarh recently played a crucial role in saving the life of a critically ill passenger on an IndiGo flight from Goa to Chandigarh.

The incident occurred on June 16 during flight 6E724, when Maj Simrat Rajdeep Singh, who was on board the flight, noticed a 27-year-old passenger in critical condition. Recognizing the urgency of the situation, Maj Singh immediately sprang into action and requested an emergency landing in Mumbai.

The IndiGo crew swiftly responded to the situation, diverting the flight to Mumbai and providing the passenger with urgent medical attention, including administering multiple injections and using an AED to prevent cardiac arrest. Two doctors on board, including Maj Simrat Rajdeep Singh, assisted in the emergency response.

Upon landing in Mumbai, emergency medical staff were ready to receive the passenger, who was deplaned in a wheelchair. The doctors on board determined that the passenger had small kidneys and end-stage chronic kidney disease, which was exacerbated by the high altitude of the flight.

IndiGo emphasized its commitment to passenger safety and well-being, particularly in challenging circumstances. The airline commended the quick and coordinated efforts of its crew and the assisting doctors, including Maj Simrat Rajdeep Singh, in ensuring the passenger received prompt and effective medical care.
