Kudos to the bravery of the villagers who bravely rescued the children and prevented a big nightmare from taking place.
A number of states have been affected by monsoon rains this year. Rains have caused flood water from rivers to over flow on roads and have created a heck of a problem for the people to commute.
In a recent incident, an old bridge on the Mumbai-Goa interstate highway close to Mahad collapsed taking human lives.
