Bengaluru Doctor Runs To Avoid Traffic & Reach Hospital On Time

This Bengaluru doctor decided to run to the hospital after he realised that the stretch, which usually takes 10 mins, would require 45 mins. Therefore, he quickly decided to run to the hospital instead of waiting for the traffic to clear. So, he ran on the Sarjapur-Marathahalli stretch and, luckily, reached on time for the emergency surgery. In an interview, he told The New Indian Express that he decided to run and could leave the car behind because of the presence of his driver. He also said he could run because he would regularly visit the gym.
