As it was snowing heavily and it became impossible for vehicles to ply, the Army men took it upon themselves to play the role of savior.

They carried the woman on a stretcher for over 6 km to the nearest hospital.

In a tweet, Indian Army’s Chinar Corps said they got a distress call from Ghagar Hill village at LoC in Boniyar for urgent medical assistance to a pregnant woman.

“In heavy snowfall, evacuation team carried the woman on a stretcher for 6.5 km till Salasan and brought her to Primary Health Centre,” it added.

Twitterati was all praise for the Army personnel, with many “saluting their spirit of service”.
