A man drowned as his cousin recorded a video on mobile app TikTok while they were frolicking in a lake near Hyderabad on Tuesday.
24-year-old Narasimhalu, who reportedly couldn't swim, is seen in the backdrop as his cousin Prasanth films them while bathing in the lake. He had moved deeper into the waters before Prasanth realized something was wrong.

Because of the tragic circumstances, the video of the two men in the lake was widely circulated on Thursday.
Narasimhalu was visiting his cousin when they decided to go to the lake.
