Vikas Tomar is head constable at a police station in Bulandshahr

MEERUT: Vikas Tomar, head constable at Chhatari police station in Uttar Pradesh’s Bulandshahr, performed CPR on a baby monkey, which fainted from dehydration due to a heat stroke on May 24. The video of Tomar pumping the monkey’s chest has been widely circulated in social media.
Bhoopendra Singh, SHO, said, “Due to excessive heat, a monkey fell from a tree and fainted.Several monkeys had gathered around and it was very hard to rescue the baby.”
Vikas Tomar (51) told TOI on Wednesday, “We are trained to handle emergencies. Since the bodies of humans and monkeys are very similar, I tried to revive the monkey while my colleagues protected me from an agitated troupe. I pumped the chest for almost 45 minutes with intermittent rubbing and pouring little amounts of water into the mouth and finally it revived.” He added, “The monkey comes to the police station daily and I’m happy to see him playing.”
Veterinarian Dr Hari Om Sharma said, “The monkey suffered a heat stroke and fainted due to dehydration. Timely help saved its life. After it became conscious, we administered an antibiotic.”
