Watch: Man Rescued From Flood Waters Dies Soon After In Anantapur District, AP

What you witness in this video is perhaps the classic example of a quirky fate turning life on its head in just a matter of minutes. A man who was being swept away in Kojjepally rivulet of Gutthi (Gooty) mandal in Anantapur district of Andhra Pradesh, was rescued by a group of local villagers. The incident happened when he attempted to drive across a road braving the furiously overflowing floodwaters. As the water currents were too strong, he was thrown off his feet. Just as he and his vehicle were being swept away, a group of local villagers came to his rescue and brought him to safety. The video initially shows the shocked man being helped on his way out of the waters. But minutes later, as cruel fate would have it, he collapsed on the ground and died. He was identified as Sriramulu of Cherlopalli. A lorry and an auto-rickshaw laden with passengers were also caught in the middle of the floodwaters, raising fears on their safety. But luckily, they were all rescued, thus averting a major tragedy.
