Our Friend Broke his arm in one of our trips: temporary plaster

Before I begin with the actual purpose of this blog post, I want all to see where exactly we went for the weekend.

this Place is called "the Grand canyon of India" and now we know why. This was one of the best and majestic places I have ever seen.

we had a few tower remains on the fort with dangerous steps leading to the top. they were scary and when one of my friend tried to climb on it, he slipped and fell on the rocks. He badly hurt his hand. we were in a very secluded area with no good doctors or hospitals close by. nevertheless, we took him to nearest local doctor in a village and instead of making him feel better,he worsened the pain by twisting his arm. we were not sure if he had broken his elbow or not, but we could not take chances as it might affect his hand forever.

Then came our savior friend who used his "emergency medical skills" and made a temporary plaster on his hand to make it last till we reach Bangalore and get him the medical assistance he requires.

Below are the series of Photo Steps to showcase what to do in such cases. I am sure it would definitely help someone.

He was having immense amount of pain which came down after this setup. In Bangalore, the Doctor was really impressed with our friends creativity.

 I hope this post will help other trekkers.
