A hair-raising video which showed the fatal moments of students in the Beas River in Himachal Pradesh went viral on Internet. The video is largely sharing in social networking sites and one will definitely want to know the man who behind filming it.
His name is Bihari Lal, and he is a Wedding Videographer. But on the fatal day he captured the most painful moments of the year. Speaking to a leading daily about shooting the distressing event, Lal said that he was standing some meters away from the accident spot and tried hard to let them know about swirling water.
‘’I was standing at a height of 300 meters and spotted the rise in the water level. Along with other tourists, I too began shouting, clapping and whistling to save the students,but the boisterous students couldn’t hear the warnings. ‘’Lal said.
The videographer believes at least few more students standing near to the banks could have avoided the trouble had if their reacted swiftly.
Rescuers Thursday retrieved one more body from the river. With this the number of bodies recovered has gone up to eight.One of the bodies could not, however, be identified as it was beyond recognition. The most difficult part is that the search area is heavily silted and is full of mud. There are dangerous whirlpools along the way. All these are making retrieval of bodies difficult. For the hapless and tragedy-struck parents, however, the wait is unbearable.
