In a video that has gained traction on social media, a doctor is saving the life of a man who suddenly lost consciousness. The incident took place in Kolhapur, Maharashtra state, according to video descriptions posted on Twitter by several users, including Rajya Sabha MP Dhananjay Mahadik. In the 37-second video, a man in a blue T-shirt can be seen interacting with a doctor. He suddenly lost consciousness and lightly tapped the table in front of him to alert the doctor. Immediate action by health experts saved the man’s life.
“This video shows an example of a real-life hero living among us. One of the best cardiologists from Kolhapur, Dr. Arjun Adnaik, saved a patient’s life. I applaud these glorious and kind heroes ,” Mr Mahathir said in his tweet.

The video shows Dr. Adnaike performing cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) on him by beating him on the chest. Another person sitting next to the man was seen getting down from the chair to give the doctor room to work.
After a few strokes, the man regained consciousness, and his head, which had rolled back, stabilized.
A video of the doctor’s heroics has been viewed more than 38,000 times, with several Twitter users thanking him.
One user commented: “Schools should include the basics of life saving, cardiology, life saving, it’s just a matter of seconds.”
“It was a silent heart attack…the bt doctor was too alert to diagnose his problem…hats off,” said another.
Doctors in the US had to untie a man’s left hand six times after a horrific alligator attack at a zoo last month. The man lost his right hand after being bitten by a crocodile in his care.
