Bhubaneswar: Commissionerate Police ACP Sanjeev Satpathy was in the right place at the right time, and save the life of a 5-yr-old kid Rudra Pratap Sahu who met with an accident and was lying unconscious on road.

Notably, ACP Satpathy was passing through that road at that time with his wife in car saw a crowd and stopped. He found that a mother with her two kids aged 10 and 5 on a ‘Honda Activa’ had met with an accident. The mother and 10-yr-old girl received injuries but the younger kid fell unconscious.

Talking to OMMCOM NEWS, the top cop said, “The woman was wailing out for help. The crowd was consoling but none came forward to take her to the hospital. My wife Samita noticed that the younger child was unconscious and urged me to act immediately. She could emphathise and connect with the mother. We rushed the trio to Capital Hospital. It is not a deed which needs to be highlighted. Such acts of kindness and help are done by the police all around on a daily basis but it goes unnoticed except the family which is getting help. I did what needed to be done at that moment.”

It is worth mentioning that ACP Satpathy recently had lost his 12-yr-old son who accidentally died in his home. When asked whether this act gave him some kind of consolation, he said, “Recently we had lost our child. My wife was vehemently crying when we saw the woman on road asking for help. I and my wife know the grief which comes with the loss of a child. So, when we saw the unconscious child, we jumped into action immediately. We have already lost our child. We can never recover that back. But by helping others, it feels good.”
