Shimla, June 30: An adventure trip would have cost dear to three tourists in Dharamshala, Himachal Pradesh, who struggled between life and death for more than an hour in river water before they were finally rescued by the locals.

The rescue video, which has gone viral on social media, shows the three youths crying for help and struggling with the muddy water currents. The shocking video was recorded by the locals who rescued the youths safely one hour after they were struck in the flooded river. The incident took place at Bhagsunag area, located at a distance of 2 kms from McLeod Ganj, Himachal Pradesh.

“Three tourists in their 20’s were crying for help. We rushed to Bhagsunag, a local waterfall popular with the tourists. We used our shirts and trousers besides a turban to rescue them. But rescuing them was made difficult by the flow of water,”  says Kamlesh Nehria, a Bhagsunag resident, who along with others safely rescued the tourists.

TOURISTS WERE HAVING LUNCH IN MIDDLE OF RIVER

According to Abhay Karki, who shot the video, the incident took place on June 27 around 12 in the afternoon, when the tourists were enjoying their lunch by sitting on rocks in the middle of river.

“The rains suddenly flooded the river and these youths were struck in the middle. The muddy water made the scene horrible,” added Karki.

However, the tourists were finally rescued by the locals.

The incident reminded the locals of Beas river tragedy of 2014, in which 24 Hyderabad students were washed away. The local administration and the tourists seem to have learned no lessons from the incident and continue to put their lives in danger by venturing into dangerous water.
