Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaaf (PTI) Chairman Imran Khan fall from a forklift while being elevated to a stage at a rally in Lahore.
After the fall there were scene of chaos. Apparently the PTI organizers had no ambulances at reserve, nor there were any first aid kits or paramedical support available. Imran Khan was lifted like danda doli and taken to a vehicle for transport to nearest hospital.
The lifter was not secure, had no protective grills at sides.
Apparently, Imran Khan falled from the lifter because a PTI worker busy in pulling others to the stage apparently forgot that his Chairman is coming up through a fragile, unprotected, lifter and butt-pushed him, sending Khan tumbling to the ground with his bodyguards.

According to Dr Sana Saleem, Shaukat Khan hospital management shouldn’t have allowed an ICU patient to talk with the media.
Extremely unethical of the Shaukat Khanumâ€™s management to let media speak to Imran Khan from the ICU. Apparent edema on his face.

As the news of Imran Khan’s fall became public, his supporters and workers of PTI as well as general public entered in a state of shock. They were relieved to hear that Khan has survived the fall and is going through treatment now.
PTI is surely going to get a lot of sympathy votes now. Fall of Imran Khan is rise of PTI? May 11 will tell.
