New Delhi, April 6: Prime Minister Narendra Modi expressed happiness for Deepali Jhaveri, an Indian resident, who was awarded by Japan's Joto Fire Station for rescuing a man by performing cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) at Dandiya Masti 2022 in Tokyo in October last year.
PM Modi commented on his official Twitter account, "This is gladdening to know, and it underscores the importance of giving timely assistance to any person affected."
He made the statement in response to a tweet from the Indian Embassy in Japan. The Indian Embassy in Japan tweeted, "Ms Deepali Jhaveri, an Indian resident in Japan, and Mr Ota, were awarded by Joto Fire Station for rescuing a man giving him CPR and AED at Dandiya Masti 2022, Tokyo, last October. Dandiya Raas is a traditional dance of Gujarat State."
According to the Hindi translation of the NHK World Japan news, a person's heartbeat abruptly stopped during the Garba event of Navratri in Japan in 2022.
According to the NHK World Japan report, Deepali Jhaveri, who came to play Garba, instantly performed life-saving efforts such as CPR and an automated external defibrillator (AED) and saved his life.
She maintained these precautions until the emergency response team arrived. Her courage was recognised by the Fire Department.
