Doctor Govind Nandkumar, a gastroenterology surgeon at Manipal Hospitals was supposed to perform a crucial surgery on Aug 30, when he got stuck in the city’s infamous traffic. 

 

A doctor from rain-battered Bengaluru is winning praise online for going out of his way to help his patient.

Doctor Govind Nandkumar, a gastroenterology surgeon at Manipal Hospitals was supposed to perform a crucial surgery on Aug 30, when he got stuck in the city’s infamous traffic, this time caused due to heavy waterlogging and flooding.

Realising that the delay might deteriorate the condition of his patient, who was prepped for the surgery, doctor Nandkumar left his car in the middle of the traffic and ran towards the hospital, which was around 3 km away from the Sarjapur-Marathalli stretch where he was stuck.

Speaking to NDTV, doctor Nandkumar said "I left home well in time for the surgery. Looking at the huge traffic, I decided to leave the car with the driver and ran towards the hospital without thinking twice."
