Indian Army’s Trishakti Corps rescued over 500 stranded tourists after heavy rainfall triggered landslides and caused roadblocks in the picturesque region. Responding swiftly to the crisis, troops sprang into action, ensuring the safety and well-being of the affected individuals.
The stranded tourists were relocated to three different Army Camps, where they were provided with essential amenities such as hot meals and warm clothing. Additionally, the Indian Army established three medical teams to assess the health of the rescued individuals, who were found to be generally stable upon initial examination.
However, one lady among the rescued tourists began experiencing severe symptoms, including a pounding headache and dizziness, which were promptly diagnosed as Acute Mountain Sickness (AMS). Recognizing the situation’s urgency, the medical team immediately provided the necessary medical attention to the lady. It swiftly transferred her to a nearby medical facility’s intensive care unit (ICU). Thankfully, her condition stabilized overnight, offering a glimmer of hope amidst the ordeal.
Diligent efforts are currently underway to clear the roads, facilitating vehicular movement and allowing the tourists to continue their journey. The Army remains committed to assisting the affected individuals until the route is completely cleared, ensuring their onward journey is seamless and secure.
