"I was on my way to Yellamma Temple when I saw a huge crowd gathered on the road," ASI Yashodha told news agency ANI. "When I peeked in, I saw a monkey who had fallen down after receiving a current shock. His eye was bleeding."
Though others refused to pick the monkey up, scared that it would bite, ASI Yashodha stepped up and took the primate home first and then to a hospital.
