Hero doctor saves coronavirus patient from 4th-floor hospital ledge

Incredible footage has shown a doctor helping a patient infected with coronavirus back into the hospital after he stood precariously on the ledge on the fourth floor.

The video shows the medic in full protective gear risking his own life as he climbs out of the window to save the patient.

He pulls the man to his feet and manages to convince him to return inside. On the ground, terrified onlookers have stretched out a piece of cloth to try to save the man if he did jump.

But when they see the man being saved, cheers and applause ring out from those watching.

It happened at the Netaji Subhash Chandra Bose Medical College Hospital in the Indian city of Jabalpur over the weekend.

According to the hospital, the patient had crawled out of the fourth-floor window and “tried to jump”.

Police were immediately called and when they arrived, tried to calm the patient down.

He then sat at the ledge until the doctor arrived.

It comes after police swooped on dozens of illegal coronavirus lockdown-busting parties across the UK.

There were around 70 gatherings in Birmingham alone on Saturday night, despite police now being able to fine organisers of illegal gatherings of more than 30 people up to £10,000.

Anyone who attends can also be handed a £100 fine, which doubles on each offence up to £3,200.
