"We stopped our car and both rushed to help them. There was one person inside the car of whom two were sitting outside. The car had crashed into a tractor which was transporting wood. We called the injured persons' members who had gone ahead in a different car and asked them to return to the spot," says Sharif.
"The ambulance arrived late and the injured were shifted to a government hospital in Kunigal. They were provided first aid and the hospital authority told us to shift them to Bengaluru. Later, we took them to a private hospital in Nelamangala. After the private hospitals stated they lack sufficient facilities to treat the injured, we took them to another private hospital. Their family members also arrived there and helped," narrated Sharif.
