Heavy rain on Friday evening, especially in the west and south western parts of the city resulted in severe waterlogging and traffic jams on the road. In a video doing the rounds on social media, a woman who was stuck in a car on a waterlogged road was dramatically rescued by people even as the car started to float in waist-deep water. The hood of the car was almost submerged when bystanders noticed the woman inside, shouting for help. Four people jumped into the water and rescued the woman. The incident reportedly took place near the Nayandahalli Circle on Mysuru road on Friday night.
Even as this was happening, a few kilometres from there, a priest, Vasudev Bhat, was washed away in a storm water drain during the rain. The incident took place in Kurubrahalli area of the city. After a long search, the National Disaster Response Force (NDRF) and emergency service personnel recovered the body from the drain this morning.
In another case, a woman and her daughter, Ningamma and Pushpa, are also missing from last evening and the residents suspect they might have been washed away in a nearby drain in Kurubrahalli.
