Man in Hyderabad is miraculously saved after falling into a 20-feet deep manhole


Hyderabad:  A man, on a two-wheeler, fell into a 20-feet deep manhole and came out, miraculously, only with minor injuries, in Hyderabad. The local traffic police told NDTV, that a net inside the manhole had saved him from falling deeper. 

The man, whose name has not been revealed, was on his way home from office at about 6 pm, on February 8, when he fell into the open manhole, on a busy road in the heart of the city, right opposite the Telangana Secretariat.

 A video which has gone viral, shows the bike lying next to the manhole, while passersby are crowding around the manhole. Some of them are trying to lower a thick rope and a ladder, in a bid to rescue the man.

After a while, he is seen coming out of the manhole in soiled clothes, visibly shaken and wobbling for a few minutes. Fortunately, he did not hurt his head, as he was wearing a helmet when he fell and got away with minor bruises.

The incident happened at the site where workers of the Hyderabad Metropolitan Water Supply and Sewerage Board, had dug a pit on the road to carry out repair works.

Eyewitnesses claim, the man was on a bike at a high speed, when his lost control and hit a railing and fell. Passersby reportedly, heard his cries and rushed to rescue him.

It was in same area, in 2016, when a major portion of the road had caved in after heavy rain, causing embarrassment to the state government, which holds regular road safety campaigns.
