A passenger who suffered cardiac arrest at Mumbai’s Chhatrapati Shivaji International Airport was resuscitated by three security personnel posted on duty. CCTV footage of Friday’s incident, accessed by news agency ANI, shows a CISF personnel jumping over the baggage checkpoint counter and rushing to assist the collapsed passenger. While one was seen massaging the passenger’s sole, another performed cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR).

The quick response by the CISF men proved to be vital as the passenger, who was later shifted to Nanavati Hospital, is reported to be in a stable condition. One of the three has been identified as assistant sub-inspector Mohit Kumar Sharma.

CPR is an emergency procedure performed to ensure the blood supply to the brain of a person who has suffered a cardiac arrest. It is performed by applying pressure on the chest of the person and facilitating artificial breathing to make sure that enough blood is pumped by the heart, in order to preserve vital body functions. This primary emergency procedure increases the chances of recovery of a person who has suffered a cardiac arrest.
