While taking breakfast, Mr. Mohanty suddenly became unconscious with mouth full of food.
His wife started crying and shouted for help.
Dr. Mallick immediately left her seat and attended him.
She first opened the unconscious man’s mouth with her hand and removed all food particles so that they don’t choke the respiratory tract.
