Mumbai Local News: 12-year-old boy loses leg after falling from train near Bandra

A 12-year-old boy fell from a local train between Bandra and Mahim stations and lost his leg. Fortunately, he was spotted by an alert police constable who rushed him to hospital. As per the reports, Farhan Ansari is stable and is recuperating at a hospital. 

As per the report in the Times of India, Farhan's father, a dress designer, believes that his son fell off the train while travelling with friends and they haven't spoken to their son as he is traumatised. It is believed that Farhan, a Mahim resident, had gone to Bandra with friends to collect notebooks from a classmate when the incident happened.

Due to the pandemic, Farhan had skipped class and thus wanted to borrow notes from a buddy in Bandra so he could study at home, said the boy's father Kamru who was at work when the incident happened.

While patrolling near Bandra station, GRP constable Chetan Tatu spotted Farhan on track and rushed to him. With the help of a bystander, he carried him to Bandra station. 

Later, he was moved to Sion Hospital where his leg was amputated. According to Sion Hospital's Director of Orthopaedics, Dr Arvind Goregaonkar, when Farhan was admitted, he was in critical condition with crushed tissues and bones. He added that his knee couldn't be saved hence they amputated it. 

Doctor added that once he recovered entirely, he could be equipped with prosthetic limbs, which he will have to change every year or two.
