Father travels 230 km in search of his son 'declared dead' in Odisha train crash, finds him alive in morgue

The tragic train accident in Odisha left families distraught and desperate as they embarked on a frantic search for their missing loved ones. With the devastating accident involving multiple trains and claiming numerous lives and causing widespread injuries, family members of the victims faced a daunting challenge in locating and reuniting with their relatives.

In a moving story of unwavering faith, a father refuses to accept that his son was killed in a tragic train accident in Odisha. Determined to find his son, he traveled more than 230 kilometers from Calcutta to Balasore.

The train collision, which involved two express trains and one freight train, claimed the lives of 275 people and injured more than 1,100.

Among the victims was 24-year-old Biswajit Malik, who is presumed to have died in the Balasore train accident.

Helaram Malik, Biswajit’s father, went on a relentless search to locate his son. The search for him eventually led him to a makeshift morgue in Odisha, where he arrived in an ambulance from Calcutta after a long journey.

After being brought home from Odisha, Biswajit underwent surgery at SSKM Hospital’s trauma care unit and is scheduled for further surgeries. Despite his severe injuries, Malik’s condition remains stable.

According to the report, Malik’s father runs a small shop in Howrah. Hearing about the Odisha train accident, Helaram contacted his son and found out the extent of his injuries.

Without hesitation, Helaram, accompanied by his brother-in-law, Dipak Das, immediately set out in an ambulance to bring Biswajit back home from Odisha’s Balasore.

However, their search did not go as planned. Helaram searched tirelessly for his son but was initially unable to locate him.

However, he refused to give up. Helaram and Das persisted in their search, eventually reaching Bahanaga High School, where they came across a temporary morgue filled with numerous bodies.

Das remembered the moment when a commotion broke out and they noticed a trembling hand in the middle of the pile of bodies.

It was Biswajit, seriously injured but alive. He was quickly taken to Balasore Hospital, where he received immediate medical attention.

However, doctors recommended that Helaram transfer his son to Cuttack Medical College Hospital. Despite this recommendation, Helaram discharged Biswajit and returned home, signing a bond.

Palash Pandit, the ambulance driver accompanying Das and Malik, reported that Biswajit remained largely unconscious during the journey back to Kolkata.

Reports indicate that Biswajit suffered multiple fractures to his right hand and will require additional surgeries.

Speaking about Biswajit’s survival, forensic medicine expert Somnath Das explained the concept of “suspended animation”, where a person’s vital signs are significantly reduced.

It is possible that the circumstances of the search and rescue operations did not adequately check the vital signs of the injured passengers, and the case of Biswajit serves as an example of this fact.
