Uttarakhand: Horrific video of workers at Tapovan barrage falling off
In a horrific video, workers at Tapovan barrage fell off when the river was flooded initially on February 7, 2021. These disturbing visuals show some 8 to10 workers were seen falling due to water and mud.
The sudden flood in the Alaknanda river system in Chamoli district in Uttarakhand state on Sunday is thought to have been triggered by an avalanche or glacier burst. Earlier on Sunday, a portion of the Nanda Devi glacier broke off in Chamoli district. This triggered an avalanche and a deluge in the Alaknanda river.
