Rescue officials save five trapped as river swells up due to heavy rain in northern India
Rescue officials of the National Disaster Response Force (NDRF) saved five people trapped from a flooded house after a river swelled up due to heavy rainfall in northern India’s Himachal Pradesh.
This happened in Charudu village of Kullu district on July 9.
Visuals showed the NDRF officials at work as they saved those were trapped in the flooded house. The officials deployed the use of an anchored rope and harness as one of the individuals were seen crossing the raging river with its help. It continued to rain but that didn’t deter the officials from doing their work. The rescued man was seen making his way to the other end of the river, having been saved from the inundated building.
The water level in Beas has risen due to heavy rainfall in Mandi and Kullu districts of the state which has caused flash floods and also landslides in several regions. Due to stones falling at many places on the Kullu-Manali road, traffic movement has also been restricted from Kullu to Manali.
