[VIDEO] Watch How Chennai People Saved a Man From Floods..

 

With the Chennai rains wrecking havoc on the city, and the entire city has been shut down with the water overflowing and covering everywhere. People are stranded and starving as Chennai city is flooded. But a video uploaded on Tuesday, shows that their spirit is unbroken. It shows a man getting washed away in a dangerously flooded unidentified street. But passersby rush to his aid, form a human chain and pull him out. The man is saved from a definite watery grave.

The quality of the video is grainy – but the human spirit shines through it. The way Chennaites are coming together at this moment of crisis is outstanding. Chennai has never seen this kind of rain in last 100 years. From a school to an airport, every place is closed down.

We salute them and to every Chennaites who have shown what being together means, everyone is trying to help, wherever they are. Those who have internet connection are using social media platforms to coordinate search, rescue and food distribution efforts and also reach out to people who need help.
