With heavy rainfall in Kerala the Idukki was opened yesterday after 26 years. As for now 29 people have died in the heavy rains & more than 50,000 are being rescued & shifted to camps.
A video is going viral on social media in which a man is seen running across a bridge with a child in his arms minutes before the Cheruthoni bridge went under water.
The footage by News18 Kerala was captured on camera as the fifth shutter of the Idukki dam was opened and the reservoir’s water was released into the Cheruthoni river. The police officer who ran across the bridge in the nick of time managed to save the child and is now being hailed as a hero online. The bridge is currently submerged.
