The group of five were travelling to Dudhsagar along the rocky terrains when they decided to drive across a swelling river. On reaching the half way mark, the vehicle stalled and refused to budge. The swelling waters gushed into the vehicle making it unstable. The males tried to escape but were unable to due to the force of the water.
The Drishti lifesavers posted at Dudhsagar were alerted about the emergency situation and rushed to aid in the rescue. Lifesavers Niraj Gaonkar, Devendra Naik, Hanuman Bhajantriy, Vithal Masurkar and Shanu Gaunekar teamed up and rescued the group. The males were secured and brought back to safety. The vehicle meanwhile was marooned in the river and backup was called to assist with its recovery.
