New Delhi: Quick thinking on part of CISF personnel helped save the life of a 50-year-old passenger riding a Delhi Metro as they performed a cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) process on him, official sources said on Monday.
Punjab resident Bharat Bhushan was traveling towards Huda City Centre along with his daughter when he complained of uneasiness and suffocation around 9.30 am inside the train.

The passenger thereafter regained his senses, after which an ambulance was called and he was shifted to Max Hospital at Saket along with his daughter for further medical assistance.
