Vilgam Army Camp on Saturday rescued a pregnant woman amid heavy snowfall from Khanbal to Primary Health Centre (PHC) Vilgam of North Kashmir’s Kupwara district. 

At around 10:40 pm, the Indian Army camp at Vilgam received a distress call from SHO Vilgam and Mushtaq Ahmed Gagi, husband of the pregnant woman, Safoora Begum, requesting for urgent rescue and medical evacuation of the pregnant lady who was in critical condition.

“Due to heavy snowfall from the last two days, the road was completely blocked and vehicle’s movements was very difficult. Realising the exigency, rescue team and medics from the Army camp at Kakrosa immediately responded to distress call, risking their own safety, while hiking for 7-8 km in 2 to 3 feet of snow in the middle of the night. In spite of heavy snow on the road, the rescue team reached the location in time and the patient was carefully and safely evacuated to PHC Vilgam.

Vilgam police already on standby at PHC Vilgam received the patient and a team of doctors attended the lady immediately to ensure her safety. “The family and doctors have in the meantime expressed their gratitude to the Indian Army and Vilgam police for their swift action and timely assistance to save the life of mother and child.
