J&K: Army troops carry pregnant woman to hospital in knee-deep snow

Jan 07, 2021 20:40 IST

As heavy snowfall threw life out of gear across Kashmir valley this week, Army troops helped a pregnant woman in Kupwara reach hospital by carrying her a distance of about 2 km in knee-deep snow before she could be driven to a hospital. The video was shared by the Army PRO on Twitter. The woman gave birth to a boy at the Karalpura hospital. The Company Operating Base (COB) of the Indian Army at Karalpura in Kupwara received a distress call at around 11.30 PM on Tuesday from the woman's husband who lives in Pharkian village. Understanding the gravity of the situation and plight of the family, the army troops and a battlefield nursing assistant at Karalpura took some medical comfort items and reached their home on time. The family and the civil administration thanked the Army unit for its humanitarian efforts.
