Not enough paramedics as players opened the door of the ambulance to take out stretcher from the van. It is reported that medical officer posted in the venue wasn't in position.

It was Physio Dr Suraj Bhusal (MFC) who didn’t think twice before starting frantic cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR). Dr Nabina Shrestha’s timely intervention also helped Manish gain responsiveness on time. Thanks to those foreign players lying on the ground, communicating with Dangi continuously. We saved a prolific player !
