During the stampede outside the Gymnkhana cricket stadium on Thursday, constable Dawa Naveena of the Hyderabad City police was deputed to Begumpet police station and saved a woman who was left for dead.

In order to manage the crowd, Naveena was deployed at the stadium gates and performed CPR on the woman. Ranjitha, a housekeeping employee at the Gymkhana, has been identified as the woman.

During her interview, Naveena said she was waiting for tickets at the gate since early morning and saw several women in the same situation. A large number of people fell down and received injuries when the gates suddenly opened.

A woman was crushed down and run over while she was trying to control them. When she arrived at the woman’s side, she saw that she was unconscious. After getting down on her knees, she attempted to wake her up, but there was no response.

CPR was immediately started on the woman without any further delay. Naveena continued CPR even though there was no response.” The victim didn’t move at all, but I continued CPR with a sense of hope,” Naveena said

The only thing I could have done was to see her and act immediately, so she came back and told Naveena.Naveena, a recruit from the 2020 batch, commented that it was the first time she handled such a situation, but thanks to training, she was able to handle it.

She informed Begumpet Inspector P Srinivas Rao, who was also on the scene, after the woman responded. His official vehicle was to be used to transport the woman to the hospital.
