Tragic video showed retired soldier Balwinder Singh Chhabra collapsing on the stage after suffering from heart attack in Indore, MP | X

In a shocking incident reported from Indore in Madhya Pradesh, an elderly man dressed as a soldier who was present at an event performing on a patriotic song with the tricolour in hand with children as the audience, collapsed on the stage after suffering from a heart-attack.

However, the children kept clapping even as the elderly man collapsed as they thought it was part of the presentation by the performer. Another person is seen in the video picking up the tricolour and waving the national flag as even he thought that the soldier had collapsed on the stage as part of the 'act'.

However, after the elderly man didn't get up despite the song ending, the people present there sensed that something was wrong. They rushed near the man, identified as Balwinder Singh Chhabra, and tried to give him CPR, after which he felt a little better. He was rushed to the hospital. However, he reportedly died during treatment.

According to reports, Balwinder had undergone a bypass surgery in the year 2008. He had also filled the form of 'angdaan' or organ donation. A report on Hindi news portal Amar Ujala also reported that the family members of Balwinder Singh also donated his eyes as it was the wish of the man.

Local reports suggest that Balwinder had a wish to join the Indian Army. However, during his young age, he failed to get selected in his tests for the armed forces. Hence, he always proudly adorned an army costume and performed at various cultural programmes in the locality.

Balwinder Singh Chhabra was often seen in cultural programmes and participated in several events in the city. However, the heartbreaking video has once again captured the menace of heart-attack.

In recent times, videos of people collapsing suddenly and passing away due to heart-attacks have surfaced aplenty. Such incidents raised alarm bells among the people and medical experts who raised the issue of sedantary lifestyles, stress and other factors as the reason behind increasing number of heart-attacks.
