Mangaluru: In a heartwarming incident in Sampaje, a KSRTC bus passenger, Pradeep Kumar BS, found unexpected help after being bitten by a scorpion. Pradeep, a software engineer from Shivamogga, shared his tale of unexpected assistance after the incident occurred on March 2 during a bus journey from Puttur to Bengaluru.

As the bus made a tea break stop at Sampaje, Pradeep was stung by a scorpion on his right toe. Amidst the pain, Thajuddin Tarly, the owner of Hotel India Gate where the bus was, rushed to his aid. Tarly, trained in emergency first aid under SKSSF Viqaya Blood Donors’ Forum, quickly attended to Pradeep. He advised calmness, cleaned the wound, and ensured Pradeep received prompt first aid.

Despite initial panic, Tarly’s actions brought a sense of calm. He arranged for a staff member, Irfan Peradka, to accompany Pradeep on a bike to the nearest primary health center. Irfan informed the doctor in advance, and Pradeep received necessary medical attention, including an injection. When the bus driver suggested the nearest government hospital was in Madikeri, Tarly organized an ambulance for Pradeep’s transfer to Sullia government hospital.

At Sullia government hospital, Pradeep was admitted to the ICU, underwent a blood test showing no abnormalities, and received a recommendation for 24-hour observation. Pradeep’s cousins, who are also doctors, suggested he recover at their place in Puttur. With no complications, Pradeep returned to thank Thajuddin at Hotel India Gate. Grateful for the timely aid, Pradeep confirmed that doctors acknowledged the neutralization of venom, thanks to Tarly’s swift response.

Thajuddin Tarly, chairman of SKSSF, Sahachari Sullia, shared, “I was trained to deal with emergencies and provide first aid under the SKSSF Viqaya Blood Donors’ Forum. I only practiced what I had learned. What was touching is that Pradeep returned to thank me and even got my number from the payment service app that he had used to pay at the hotel.” This incident stands as a testament to the value of timely first aid and compassionate assistance in unexpected situations.
