Reportedly the Indian Air Force launched a daring rescue mission on Monday afternoon after four men were caught in an overflowing river in Jammu and Kashmir. Meanwhile the men were rescued from near an under-construction bridge over the Tawi river, which flows through Jammu. Furthermore two of the men rescued sought refuge on a pier attached to one of the under-construction bridge's pillars and dramatic visuals from the river side showed the men swimming in the river and climbing on to the pier to save themselves from getting swept away in the flowing river.

Reportedly, the men were in the river to fish and a sudden increase in the river's flow due to heavy rains led to the men getting stranded in the river. Further an Indian Air Force helicopter was immediately pressed into service to rescue the men and the IAF chopper made attempts to rescue the men but was initially unable to do so.



Moreover two of the four men somehow managed to swim to the river's bank and to safety and the two other men were unable to reach the bank and instead swam to a pier attached to one of the pillars of bridge being constructed over the Tawi river. Apparently the IAF crew member is then seen gesturing to the pilot of the helicopter, after which the men are pulled up to safety. Hence the rope is lowered again to pull up the IAF crew member, bringing daring and heroic rescue mission to a successful end.
