NDRF rescued two linemen stuck mid-air for one hour over swollen river in Palghar district
Two contractual linemen were stuck around 50 feet in mid-air above the swollen Vaitarna river at Manor town in Palghar district in Maharashtra state while carrying out electrical work on Friday. The linemen were stuck for about an hour before being rescued by a National Disaster Relief Force (NDRF) team.
Both were immediately taken to the government hospital for medical tests. According to the reports, they did not dare to swim despite knowing swimming as they feared that river could sweep them away. The daring rescue mission is going viral on the internet.
