A car smashed into a caved-in road in Delhi’s Dwarka on Monday, amid heavy rains in the national capital.
The vehicle was plying on a road in Dwarka Sector-18 when it was almost swallowed by a huge hole caused due to massive downpour in the city on Monday. It was later pulled out with the help of a crane, the Delhi Police said.
No injuries were reported in the incident.
In a separate incident, a 27-year-old man died today due to drowning while he was filming the waterlogging at a railway underpass in Pul Prahlad Pur area.
