A team of Brave Jawans from the Indian Army fearlessly rescued two stranded local women from drowning in Siyom River near Kaying Village of Arunachal Pradesh’s West Siang District.
The incident took place on Wednesday when two local women were trapped at a junction of Siyom and Pitgong rivers due to a sudden increase in the water level. The rivers saw a huge influx in its water level near the Kaying Village and both the women were on the verge of being swept away by the strong currents. The villagers from Kaying reached out to the Indian army for help and a rescue team was assembled promptly from a nearby camp. They reached the site and launched the operation.
The Army said that the team “displayed ingenuity and exemplary courage by improvising a raft with tubes and bamboo. They eventually rescued the women successfully.” The people from the locality lauded and showed gratitude towards the Indian Army rescue team for their prompt action and presence of mind.
