RAJAMAHENDRAVARAM: A policeman saved the life of a farmer, who suddenly suffered a heart attack during the Amaravati maha padayatra in Rajamahendravaram on Tuesday. A video surfaced showing the policeman playing the Good Samaritan and performing the emergency CPR (cardiopulmonary resuscitation) technique to revive the functioning of the farmer's heart.
The farmer, who was participating in the pada yatra, fainted and collapsed suddenly. Even as fellow protesters used the placards to fan and give him fresh air, the unidentified policeman quickly swung into the rescue act. Thanks to his and his colleague's efforts, the farmer's life could be saved.
The Maha padayatra, being taken out in the name of the Amaravati farmers and upto Arasavilli, is currently passing through the erstwhile combined East Godavari district. The initiative is meant to press for retaining Amaravati as the only capital of Andhra Pradesh and force the YSRCP government of YS Jaganmohan Reddy to withdraw its proposal for the creation of three capitals as part of decentralisation of power.
