Nidhi Chaphekar, the ‘woman in yellow jacket’ who’s picture at Brussels airport went viral in March 2016 recently spoke to new agency ANI and recalled her experience of surviving the twin blasts of Brussels.
Nidhi, who was seen in the picture looking dazed and dishevelled, is a member of Jet Airways cabin crew.
She could not walk, but her only priority was to stop the blood loss. She thus asked a lady to help her lie down while she kept her legs on a bench at a height so that the blood flows towards her heart.
She recalls a policeman named Alen, who kept her engaged so she did not fall sleep. Nidhi explained that if someone sleeps in such a condition then everything slows down.
It was only on reaching the hospital, she was told that her face was burnt and had over the months undergone intensive skin graft surgeries to recover from it.
