Watch: Villagers risk lives to cross river in Chamoli

Updated:3 months, 2 weeks ago IST

Chamoli (Uttarakhand), Sep 05 (ANI): Students and villagers alike are risking their lives crossing a river in Chamoli district in Uttarakhand. A bridge connecting the two end of the river collapsed over two months ago due to heavy rainfall in the region. Students jump from stone to stone to cross the river. The heavy current of the river makes it even more risky to cross the way without assistance. Locals are coming up with their own ways to cross the river by tying ropes and throwing wood logs in the river to substitute the bridge. District Magistrate said, “We have ordered village administration to construct new bridge at the earliest.”
