Udupi, Jul 8: A car was swept away by swiftly flowing water near Kannarpady-Kadekar Road, Udupi, on July 8. Fortunately, all four occupants narrowly escaped with their lives.

The incident occurred on a road completely submerged by torrential rain, causing the vehicle to be carried away in the rushing water.

Due to the intensity of the water flow, the car was submerged, but the occupants managed to exit the vehicle.

With the help of firefighters and residents, they retrieved the stranded car from the field where it had come to rest.

    One small advice to the car owners. Please go for comprehensive insurance policy every year which also includes damage to the engine due to water (floods).
