‘Lady Singham’ Chennai Cop Carries Unconscious Man On Shoulders, Takes Him To Safety, Watch

Even if in 2021 you think climate change is just a hollow phenomenon, then you should look at what heavy rains and strong winds are doing to Chennai. The city has been paddling through the devastating floods for the past few days that have thrown normal life out of gear.

The dirty manhole water has entered homes and temples, trees have been uprooted across the city due to the torrential rain. Traffic diversions and subway failures have reminded Chennaites of their darkest nightmares. Continuous power cuts have also dimmed their hopes. Revenue Minister KKSSR Ramachandran informed that 14 people had died in rain-related incidents, reported The New Indian Express.

However, amid such grim situations, several good Samaritans have volunteered to help resume life to normal. Among these is a uniformed female police officer who has taken the internet by storm by her act of courage and kindness.

Braving the rains, TP Chathiram area Inspector E Rajeswarai carried an unconscious, presumably dead daily wage laborer on her shoulders to a nearby hospital. When Rajeswarai was tipped about the man stuck in an uprooted tree at a cemetery, she rushed to the spot barefoot to rescue him.


Minutes later, she was seen carrying the 28-year-old man identified as R Udhayakumar, in Chennai’s Kilpauk to safety the video of which has now gone viral online.

“At around 8.15 am, I received a call from the control room saying that a man died after a tree branch fell over him at the cemetery in TP Chatram. My team and I rushed to the spot. On close examination, I realized that he was unconscious,” Rajeswari told The New Indian Express.

She further added, “The duo had drunk last night and Udhayakumar’s friend did not even check if he was breathing. I took him on my shoulder and thought of taking him in our patrol vehicle.”
