Navy Chief Admiral Sunil Lanba Meets Sailor Abhilash Tomy After Surgery


Chief of Naval Staff Admiral Sunil Lanba met Navy officer Abhilash Tomy on Thursday in Delhi, after a surgery to fix his back injury. Admiral Lanba spent some time in Commander Tomy’s hospital room and wished him speedy recovery.

The two-hour surgery was carried out by Air Commodore MS Sridhar, the senior most neuro-surgeon of Indian Armed Forces. Commander Tomy had suffered back injury while competing in the Golden Globe Race, one of the most challenging endurance races on the planet.

He had sailed into hurricane winds in the most remote and uncharted part of the Indian Ocean last month. The naval officer was rescued in an international effort after his boat was seriously damaged in the Indian Ocean.

He was brought back to India on October 7, by Indian Navy frigate INS Satpura from Ile Amsterdam, a small island in the Indian Ocean, where he had been taken after he was rescued from the rough seas by French fisheries patrol vessel FPV Osiris last month. Read More
