    Flash Flood in India sends 5 over waterfall

    Posted by someone else on the ACA forums.

    "A day out at the popular Patalpani waterfalls in the Indian state of Madhya Pradesh turned to tragedy when floodwaters turned a crossing point on the river into a powerful torrent in seconds. More than a dozen people were crossing when the flood struck, leaving five cling to each other for support before the tide of water swept them over edge of the waterfall. Of the five people seen plunging hundreds of feet over the edge of a waterfall in this video, two miraculously survived."

    What an amazing video. Two in the front could have made it out easy I think. They hesitated too long and just watched the water get higher. But my guess is they thought they could wait it out and that boulder was "high ground". Bummer.
    Your safety is not my responsibility.
