Mysuru: Driver in Running Bus Suffers Heart Attack, Saves 40 Passengers before Dying
Mysuru: A rare sense of commitment and quick thinking was shown by a KSRTC bus driver even after suffering a heart attack while driving here on Tuesday.
Channnegowda (50) was driving a passenger bus from Mandya to Mysuru. When it reached close to Colombia Asia hospital in the city, he suffered a heart attack. Yet his mind was alert and he managed to bring the bus to halt by the side of the road. Unfortunately, the heart problem took its toll and he was found dead immediately.
The passengers, 40 in number, were unnerved for a while but soon recovered. They were sad that his life could not be saved, while he had saved many people’s lives. On a busy street, there was a high mishap potential, if it was not stopped by the side.
