Viral Video: In a horrifying incident, a Patna woman fell into an open manhole while talking on the phone. The incident took place on Malia Mahadev Jalla Road, under Ward-56 in Patna. The incident was caught on camera and it has gone viral online. In the video, a crowded road is seen with an open manhole in the middle of the road. Various vehicles were also moving on the same road alongside people on foot. A woman, who was talking on the phone while walking, is seen suddenly falling into the open manhole. But what happened after that was something nobody could have predicted. Read on to find out.
The viral video was posted by the Times of India. It was reported that the manhole was open due to some sewage work but it was not closed after that. Even after various complaints by the residents, no action was taken by the local municipality. A Mirror Now reporter covering the incident on scene even claimed that this situation is prevalent in many streets of Patna. Open manholes have become a commonplace in the city. The situation gets worse at night time as it is harder to see the manhole and there are no barricades to alert people to it. Passerby can easily fall in.
Viral Video: Woman falls in open manhole
The trending video opens with a woman walking right behind an e-rickshaw. The woman is seen speaking on her phone. As the vehicle moved right in front of her, she did not see the manhole. Just as the vehicle passes the manhole, she gets distracted by something and looks behind, completely missing the manhole. As she moves forward, she steps into the hole and drops right to the bottom. As soon as that happened, the passerby were alerted and everyone gathered around. What happened next was truly heartwarming.
People gathered around and some extended their hand to the woman. Within moments they managed to successfully pull her to safety.
The viral video not only shows a scary moment that could have endangered the woman’s life but also a compassionate moment where people came together to rescue a person.
Lesson to learn: What not to do
However, the most important lesson to draw from this is that, while on the street, never get distracted by your phone. In fact, all your faculties should be focussed on what is happening around you rather than on the phone. Whether it is walking, cycling, driving or doing any other activity outside the house, do not get onto your phone.
