A 62-year-old woman weighing 160 kg fell from her bed in their flat in the Waghbil area of Thane city in India on Thursday morning.
The woman, who has mobility issues due to her poor health, accidentally fell from her bed around 8 am.
Her family was unable to get her back to the bed, so they called the fire department for help.
A team from the Regional Disaster Management Cell (RDMC) rushed to the flat and lifted the female up to place her on the bed. Luckily, she did not sustain any injuries from the fall.
This is not the first time that the fire department has been called to help someone who has fallen from their bed.
In 2021, the RDMC helped a 70-year-old woman who suffered the same and was unable to get up.
The fire department also responded to a call in 2020 from a family who was unable to lift their 150 kg relative who had tumbled out of bed.
The RDMC is equipped to handle a variety of emergency situations, including people who have fallen from their beds.
The team has special equipment that allows them to safely lift and transport people who are unable to move themselves.
