Chhattisgarh: Dramatic IAF rescue after man held on to treee for 16 hours at dam
A man in Chhattisgarh's Bilaspur was rescued by personnel of the Indian Air Force Monday morning. He was stranded at Khutaghat Dam near Bilaspur due to heavy rain and rising level of the dam water. An Mi-17 chopper of the IAF was sent for the rescue mission. The man had jumped into the wastewater weir last evening but was unable to come out due to the heavy flow of the water. He sat on a stone for 16 hours, holding onto a tree to save himself. The Khutaghat Dam is a popular picnic spot in Chhattisgarh and there were a number of visitors on Sunday.
