Vastavam Web: A man is seen being swept away by the rampaging floodwater in a dramatic visual that has emerged from Hyderabad, one of the worst affected districts in Telangana that has been witnessing heavy rain for the last three days. It is not clear whether the man has been rescued.
In the dramatic video shot in Barkas, near Falaknuma, the man is seen being swept away by the strong currents of the rainwater as efforts are made to save him. The man tries to grab hold of a pole that comes in the path but fails as he is pushed by the strong currents.
Two people standing at an elevated path are seen watching helplessly amid screams by locals who try to save the man. A tyre tube — possibly thrown to save him from drowning — is also seen being swept away in the currents.
The rains were triggered by a deep depression over the west-central Bay of Bengal leading to heavy rains across several districts of Telangana, according to the weather department.
