Watch How This Motorcyclist Saved An 8-Year-Old From A Seizure In A Traffic Jam
A motorcyclist has been praised online for his heroic act in saving a young girl who went into an epileptic seizure during a traffic jam on Thursday, 23 May
Itthiphon Petchphibunpong was riding his motorbike in Phitsanulok, Thailand when he came across a car with its windows rolled down and a man yelling for help from the inside.
51-year-old father Sorachat Sadudee was reportedly driving home after picking up his daughters from school, when his eight-year-old suddenly felt tired and sick
Daily Mail revealed that the girl began to foam at the mouth and had a "potentially deadly tonic seizure" before she passed out in the car.
Unable to rush her straight to the hospital because of the heavy traffic, the dad was forced to roll down the windows and beg for help from motorists.
At that moment, 28-year-old Itthiphon coincidentally rode past, asked what was happening, and immediately offered to bring the girl to the hospital
Footage then showed the father carrying his daughter out of the car and getting onto the motorcycle, as they honked and sped through rush hour traffic to the nearest hospital.
Fortunately, the girl was saved in the nick of time
It took them four minutes to get to the hospital – a much faster time, compared to if they had waited in traffic.
"I couldn't thank him enough for his kindness. He saved my daughter's life. As soon as she is fully recovered, I'll take her to meet him and thank him again in person," the father later shared, according to Daily Mail.
Meanwhile, the biker said: "At first, I was also surprised to see her having a seizure. I didn't know how to treat her but I knew that I could take her to the hospital with my motorcycle.
"As I am also a father, I know what it feels like to see our children collapsed and in pain in front of us. So, I didn't even hesitate to help her," he added.
The video, which was posted on Itthiphon's Facebook, has since received over 52,700 shares.
