A car being driven by a young couple was trapped in a raging current of water on Sunday afternoon, after heavy rains caused floods in Dehradun, India. The residents used a makeshift platform made out of a tree branch to reach the couple in the car. But, as the woman walked across it, she slipped and fell into the water. As she was getting drifted away by the current, a quick thinking onlooker plunged into the rushing water and saved the woman.

A resident of the area Srihari Lal said, the roads get flooded every rainy season and has posed a severe danger to motorists and cars equally. He said: ”We have been asking for a bridge for the last many years but the administration has not responded so far.”

The driver of the car was later rescued and told the residents that the car got hit by a flash flood. The car, on the other hand, was carried away further and got hit by an obstacle on the road preventing it from being swept away. The heroic and brave act of the onlooker, saving the women was recorded in a video. This goes to show us, how quick thinking and common sense can save lives.
