Hyderabad: Timely intervention by a Microsoft techie and traffic volunteer, Anumod Alex Thomas, helped get aid to a lady who met with an accident. 

Anumod has been volunteering every Monday since 2014 at the IIIT junction from 9.30 am to 11.30 am. He was on his way back to his office after completing his traffic volunteering stint on December 17, when he came across an accident at the IIT junction. An injured lady was lying on the road. He called for an ambulance and got her admitted to a hospital with the help of other citizens and the Traffic police staff Badramma. 

 

The Commissioner of Police, Cyberabad,  V.C. Sajjanar, appreciated what Anumod had done. He was called to the commissioner’s office today and given a ‘certificate of appreciation’. 

Anumod says, an incident that occurred two years ago left a strong impression on his mind. A person suffering from heart stroke was left unattended on the footpath for three hours and died. 

“People should not be hesitant about helping accident victims on the road. Often they are apprehensive of follow-ups by police and being in their books. Police won’t hunt them down, but are friendly,” the 39-year-old volunteer said.

He believes the traffic volunteers make a huge difference. Traffic takes five minutes to cover 600-700 metres when a volunteer is around; otherwise it would take 25 minutes.
