A video of a doctor saving a patient who seems to have suffered a heart attack has grabbed everyone’s attention on social media. The doctor was identified as Dr Arjun Adnaik. The incident took place in Maharashtra’s Kolhapur district.

In the CCTV footage, Dr Arjun is seen sitting in front of a patient. After a few moments, the person wearing a blue shirt gets unconscious. Seeing this, Dr Arjun hurries toward the person and starts giving mild thumps on his chest with his fist. After roughly a dozen repeated thumps, the person regains consciousness and sits upright with a straight neck. Dr Arjun is seen asking the person if he is alright and returns to his chair.

The video was catapulted to Twitter by Rajya Sabha MP from Maharashtra, Dhananjay Mahadik, who lauded the efforts of the doctor. Sharing the video, Mahadik, in the caption, wrote, “This video shows an example of a real-life hero living in our midst. Dr Arjun Adnaik, one of the best cardiologists, from Kolhapur saving a patient’s life. I applaud such honourable and virtuous heroes.”
