Vehicles stuck due to rising water level in the ravine.
Due to heavy rains in Himachal Pradesh since Saturday morning, the water level of the potholes is increasing continuously. The water level of Pung Khad in Hamirpur district also rose suddenly, trapping three tippers and a JCB. Among them were two other laborers including the tipper driver. The tipper driver climbed a tree to save his life.
When the administration got information about the accident, relief and rescue work was started. The fire brigade team saved the driver. Apart from this, a rescue operation was carried out to save two laborers who filled the mining material. After a long struggle, they were also taken out safely, but still the vehicles are stuck inside the ravine.
Waiting for the water level to drop. Only then will they be taken out of here. DC Hamirpur Dev Shweta Banik says that the tipper driver and laborers have been rescued. The accident occurred due to the rise in the water level of the ravine due to heavy rains. He has appealed to the people not to go to the banks of rivers and streams.
