The twenty-five-year-old, Maddem Sasikanth Reddy from Kadapa, working as production manager at a food manufacturing company in Lagos, Nigeria, suffered from a drug resistant malaria with encephalopathy. A tracheal rupture, while rendering treatment at a local hospital in Nigeria, further complicated and led to deterioration in his condition with seemingly slim chances of recovery.

The patient was flown in a life and death condition on advanced mechanical ventilator support, with the journey spanning over 15 hours.

Malaria itself is a life-threatening disease caused by mosquito bite. Nigeria alone accounts for 23% malarial cases in the world. Compounding the severity he developed encephalopathy, which occur in one-third of the patients with severe malaria and impacts the functioning of their brain.
