Close shave for two as bike falls into river


Two bikers had a miraculous escape after they fell into a flooded river while crossing it at Rattewali village near Barwala.

According to information, there was a considerable increase in the water level in the river due to heavy rain in the hilly areas. People who had to cross the river were waiting on its banks for the water level to recede.

Two persons riding a two-wheeler tried to cross the river. As soon as the bikers reached the middle of the river, they fell down and were being swept away due to the gushing water.

People present on both sides of the river caught hold of the bike after entering the water and saved the duo.

Their identity could not be known as they were new to the area and left the spot immediately.
