KOLKATA: BCCI president and former India captain Sourav Ganguly was admitted to a hospital in his hometown Kolkata on Saturday after suffering what is being called a “mild cardiac arrest”.
Ganguly suffered a “blackout” after a session at the gymnasium on Saturday morning and was rushed to Woodlands Hospital around 11 a.m. from his Behala residence by the family members. He was first admitted to the emergency ward and given preliminary treatment and put through investigations. He was later taken to another ward at the same hospital after he was stabilised. Doctors said he was out of “any immediate danger”.
He was working out at the gym at his home when he felt dizzy and experienced chest pain, family members said.
A senior hospital official said it was likely that he suffered “a mild cardiac arrest”. The hospital formed a three-member medical board headed by cardiologist Saroj Mandal and it was likely that Ganguly would be put through an angioplasty “as soon as possible”.
PTI quoted a hospital official saying, “He is stable now. We are checking whether this pain is due to some cardiac problem or not. He requires to undergo several tests.”
Wife Dona Ganguly and elder brother Snehasis Ganguly as well as another former Bengal cricketer were at the hospital. State sports minister and former state cricketer Laxmiratan Shukla, too, rushed to the hospital, where he was joined by senior Cricket Association of Bengal officials.
The state chief minister Mamata Banerjee also tweeted about the development, wishing Ganguly a “speedy recovery”.

The cricket fraternity too queued up on social media to wish good health to ‘Dada’, as Ganguly is fondly known.
