CISF official gives CPR to save girl’s life at Taj Mahal after fainting spell in northern India

A visit to the iconic Taj Mahal in northern India’s Uttar Pradesh turned alarming for a family from Karnataka when their two-year-old daughter, Aiza, fainted after being separated from her mother.


The incident took place in Agra city on June 24.

Visuals showed the girl lying almost unconscious with eyes open, unable to breathe and the CISF official trying his best to bring her breathing back to normal by giving CPR.


According to reports, the toddler, overwhelmed with distress, lost consciousness, prompting immediate action from the on-site medical team.


Aiza, from Belgaum, Karnataka, was touring the Taj Mahal with her parents when she became separated from her mother and started crying uncontrollably. Her condition worsened, and she fainted, showing no signs of movement. The Central Industrial Security Force (CISF) officers promptly rushed her to the Taj Mahal dispensary.


Dr. Rinku Baghel, on duty at the dispensary, administered cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) to the unconscious child. Her efforts were successful, and Aiza’s condition stabilized. The girl was then transported to Shanti Manglik Hospital for further observation, where her condition continued to improve.


Dr. Baghel explained that Aiza likely experienced hypoxia, a condition where insufficient oxygen reaches the brain, often triggered by excessive crying.


In related incidents at the Taj Mahal, two other tourists also fainted due to extreme heat and humidity. Sameer Sheikh from Mumbai and Gheesa Lal from Rajasthan experienced health issues while touring the monument. Sheikh, suffering from a respiratory problem, was treated for severe sweating and exhaustion at the Taj dispensary.


The quick response of medical personnel at the Taj Mahal highlights the importance of preparedness and prompt action in emergency situations, ensuring the safety and well-being of visitors from around the world.
