On the 24th of February 2018 in Daulatpur Zone Comilla at 5.30 pm, TraumaLink’s Volunteer Md. Johirul Islam, Imam of Daulatpur Jame Masjid, heard a tremendous sound of a car’s tire burst while taking prayer. At that, he immediately ran outside and saw a bus fell into a ditch, and yes it was Motigheel Ideal High School & College Bus carrying 52 students and teachers. Without a thought, Mr. Johirul made a call to TraumaLink call center and just dove into the ditch and started to get the injured out.
The bus carrying students were coming back to Dhaka from Picnic, while it lost control and fell into the roadside ditch. Then in few minutes TraumaLink’s volunteers Mr. Yasin Hasan Shahin, Md. Alamin, Md. Sobuj Hossain, Md. Faiz Ahmed, Mr. Noor Mohammad were dispatched at the scene. Then altogether, all volunteers provided emergency first service on 22 injured patients.
At the spot, Elliotganj’s Highway Police In Charge Mr. Jibon Hajari, Daudkandi and Comilla’s Fire Brigade, Daudkandi UNO, Comilla Highway Region Circle SP, Daudkandi Thana Police were all present at the scene. Then everyone managed and made arrangement to send everyone to Gouripur Government Hospital.
We would like to thank our volunteers for their undying efforts, dedication and courage and for providing the service at the right moment.
