Dr. Abideen Aro, a Nigerian doctor, on Monday night, rescued a yet-to-identified pilgrim that collapsed shortly after a prayer at the Masjid Haram/Nabawi in Madinah, Saudi Arabia.
The officials of the Saudi Arabia Red Crescent Authority tried so hard to revive him unsuccessfully until Dr. Aro got to the scene.
He presented himself as a medical doctor to the visibly troubled emergency responders before they allowed him access to the collapsed pilgrim.
After giving some medical treatments, the pilgrim reopened his eyes and responded to further first aid treatment. He was then promptly put on the emergency vehicle and driven to the hospital for further treatment.
According to Dr. Aro, who is a staff of Lagos State Accident and Trauma Centre, the pilgrim was dehydrated. The emergency responders thanked him for his heroic feat.
