Two MP girls ventured into the Pench river to take a selfie, get trapped in swelling water
A life-threatening tragedy was averted in Madhya Pradesh's Chhindwara on Thursday after local police and administration successfully rescued two girls who were trapped in the middle of a river. Despite restrictions due to the impact of Coronavirus and a ban on mass gathering, a group of 6-8 girls visited the Pench river in Chhindwara district's Belkhedi village for a picnic. To take a 'perfect selfie', two of them sat on a stone in the middle of the river. Meanwhile, the water level of the river rose suddenly and they found themselves trapped. Looking at this, their friends informed the police administration about the incident. The police and the local administration along with the gram panchayat acted swiftly and rescued the girls safely.
