ADMIN posted a blog entry in FDF Online NewsOne person's presence of mind might have just saved the lives of a lot of people and it's a lesson for everyone to not always be so involved in themselves and always be aware about their surroundings. Krishna Poojary, a 53-year-old man hailing from Karnataka has probably now become a hero for so many people who owe him their lives. He's a daily wage worker and despite having a weak leg, he ran 3km to inform authorities about a crack in the train tracks which saved thousands of lives. Because of his leg, he was advised by doctors to go on walks daily in order to strengthen his leg since he could not afford to seek further medical help. His walk last Saturday became quite memorable, with a happy ending, thankfully. Basically, while walking at the Brahmasthana Nagabana area in Korangrapady, he stumbled upon a crack in the train tracks and while he was figuring out what to do, a train passed, and the crack became even wider and more dangerous. © TOI As soon as he realized this was tragedy waiting to happen, he started running to get help and it had to be quick, before another train passes through. He immediately took off and ended up running 3km to find railway officials. While talking to TOI, he said, “I usually take a stroll for around 2km. I was walking near the tracks around 6.45am when I happened to see the crack. Soon a train passed by. I could only think of rushing to the officials.” © Pexels After his alert, two trains were halted until the matter could be fixed. After that, he led railway engineers to the spot and they fixed the crack and only after that the trains were allowed to pass. Not all heroes wear capes hasn't been truer, tbh. What a thing to do! He even put so much physical strain on himself, even though he was already in pain. He said, “I have severe pain in the leg. But I am glad I could be of help to people.”
