Two marathoners who were hospitalised after developing medical complications during the 21-km half marathon on Sunday are out of danger, said doctors
The two were admitted to Bombay Hospital in Marine Lines.
Promodsing Girase, a Bangalore resident in his mid-thirties, suffered a massive cardiac arrest, after the run. “We have put him off the ventilator. We will perform an angiography, after which we will decide the course of treatment,” said a doctor, who is treating him.
His family members came from Bangalore on Sunday evening, after a fellow runner put out a post on Facebook.
Meanwhile, Sukesh Kabra, 44, from Dombivli, suffered a stroke, leaving left side of his body paralysed.
“Kabra, who runs a family business, collapsed after a bout of vomiting,” said Shubha Patil, a runner, who was around when the incident took place.
He is admitted to the intensive care unit. “The patient has a family history of strokes. His father has had strokes previously. Usually, in such cases, the recovery is anywhere between 60% and 100%,” the doctor said.
