The woman named Khushbu was admitted to Etmadpur Community Health Centre (CHC) in the Agra district of Uttar Pradesh, where she gave birth to a girl child but the newborn was unable to breathe on her own. The oxygen machine at the CHC was also non-functional. Hence, Dr. Surekha Choudhary used mouth-to-mouth resuscitation to revive the child.

Dr. Choudhary, said, "The newborn was facing difficulty in breathing. We didn't get success in reviving the child through the oxygen machine. Hence, mouth-to-mouth resuscitation was used to save the child. Earlier also, I saved the life of several newborns by applying this medical technique. For me, it's a big achievement."
