From hope to horror in seconds – the video of a man being rescued from the site of Jharkhand ropeway mishap, slipping from the chopper and falling to his death has emerged, highlighting the difficulty of the rescue operation.
In the video, the man, who is said to be from Burdwan in West Bengal, is seen holding on to the rope dangling from the Indian Air Force (IAF) chopper.
Battling the force of the wind and chopper blades, he is seen reaching close to the cockpit.
In the background, onlookers are heard heaving a sigh of relief.
But just as he is about to be pulled in, the man slips and falls to his death.
Three people were killed and several injured after some cable cars on a ropeway collided with one another at Trikut hills close to Baba Baidyanath Temple in Jharkhand’s Deoghar district on Monday. Two Mi-17 helicopters are involved in the rescue operations in Deoghar district, according to IAF.
