Mumbai: 19 May 2021




Cyclone Tauktae left a trail of destruction along the west coast of India, bringing down structures, ripping off rooftops and uprooting trees.

Many had a lucky escape during this natural calamity.

In one such incident, on May 17 morning, a doctor who was driving his Honda City car in the city of Thane, adjacent to Mumbai, was hit by a huge tree uprooted by the gusty winds of 114 kilometer per hour speed.

Despite the adverse weather condition, being a medical professional, 45-year-old Vascular Surgeon Dr Ritesh Gaikwad, was on his way to the hospital when the incident took place.

When he reached near Naupada Police station in Thane, a huge tree fell on his car crushing it severely and trapping Dr Gaikwad. Seeing the crash, passersby and police personnel rushed to his help. Meanwhile, the fire brigade rescue team who were also alerted about the incident rushed to the site.

The crowd of people including the police and rescue personnel came together and physically tried to lift the fallen tree from the crushed car. After a few minutes of efforts, the rescuers were able to make a gap for the trapped doctor to come out unscathed from the mangled vehicle.

As the much relieved and thankful doctor was pulled out, the crowd broke into cheers. A slightly limping Dr Gaikwad is then escorted for a medical checkup in the nearest hospital.
