Man walks with his intestines out, reaches for nearest station

Warangal: A brave man’s story showing sheer resilience is quite heart wrenching as he walks with his intestines out for two long hours to cover nine kms to reach for help.

This man accidentally fell from a moving train when he went to relieve himself and covered nine km with his intestines out, and a shirt tired around his ripped stomach to the nearest station before help reached him, TOI reports.

According to reports, Sunil Chowhan (24) along with his brother Praveen and other migrant workers had boarded the Sanghamitra Express in Balia, UP, three days ago for Nellore in Andhra Pradesh.

Around 2 am on Monday when the train crossed Uppal station near Hasanparthy in Telangana, Sunil went to the toilet but accidentally fell out of the train when the train jerked.

“While walking towards the toilet, Sunil stopped near the washbasin but accidentally fell out of the train when the train swerved sharply. No one saw him fall. He suffered a severe injury in the abdomen and his entrails came out,” Kazipet government railway police inspector K Swamy told sources.

Brave Sunil managed to push his intestines back inside and tied his shirt around the wound and began walking to reach the nearest station.

“Sunil walked till he reached Hasanparthy station which is nine km away from the place where he fell,” the inspector said.

He was saved when Hasanparthy station master Navin Pandya spotted him across the tracks and rushed him to the Mahatma Gandhi hospital in Warangal where he underwent emergency surgery.

His condition is still serious but stable informed the hospital staff.

“Sunil lost his phone when he fell on the tracks. But with the help of hospital staff, he managed to contact his brother and informed him about the accident,” the inspector added.
