From the Archives (Jan. 31, 1969): Recovery for Annadurai after set-back

Mr. C.N. Annadurai, Chief Minister, whose condition continues to cause anxiety, made a miraculous recovery from a near-crisis condition which set in shortly before 6 p.m. yesterday [January 31, Madras]. Mr. Annadurai had to be given artificial respiration at 6-15 p.m. when he was near collapse. Rumours were spread that his end was near and the people became agitated. These rumours were, however, set at rest by a bulletin issued at 7-15 p.m. which said the Chief Minister was rallying and responding to treatment. A bulletin issued at 3 a.m. said: “The Chief Minister’s condition is better now than what it was at 9 p.m. (yesterday). His blood pressure is sustained at a satisfactory level. Other physiological recordings are all much better. Yet his condition causes a certain amount of concern.”
