A groom and his horse were rescued from a well in Uttar Pradesh.
A wedding celebration in the Kaji Tarhar village of Gonda, Uttar Pradesh, took an unfortunate turn when the groom and the horse fell into a well. The incident occurred when the horse, carrying the groom, got scared by firecrackers being let off during the celebrations and fell into the well, taking the groom with it. They were circling the well as part of a wedding ritual.
Fortunately, they were both rescued without any injuries. Reports suggest that people were lowered into the well to fasten a rope around the horse. A video clip shot on a mobile phone shows the horse, still decked in wedding finery, being brought up from the well with the help of a loading machine. The wedding party breathed a sigh of relief after the groom was rescued, soon after, absolutely safe and sound.
