The video shows a man desperately trying to make it to the other side which had a considerably strong current. However, things turned haywire when he lost the grip midway. Eventually, the man fell in the river and was carried away by the brute force. According to police, the body has been recovered.

This is not the first case where people have used other means to cross flooded places. On August 9, victims affected by the devastating floods in Mandsaur in Madhya Pradesh were rescued by a JCB.
