The medical team responded fast as several government doctors from other hospitals arrived and assisted the medical staff at the Taluk Hospital. Only 7 persons were hospitalised while all others were discharged after administering first aid.  

“There were space constraints at the hospital. Several employees who were on leave, cancelled it and joined us. Government doctors at Thopumpady, Kanammally, Palluruthy and other parts of Kochi have arrived here. Those required further medical care were referred to other hospitals, but we could treat a majority of the persons here,” a doctor at Taluk Hospital said.

Locals near the hospital helped policemen control the road traffic.
