Kanpur: It was a miraculous escape for 50-year-old Jai Devi, who survived for 16 hours after falling into the swollen Kilander drain in Jalaun, which empties into the Yamuna river. She was clinging to a piece of wood that came in her way in strong currents, even as it was washed away in the Yamuna. He was rescued by some sailors at Hamirpur, 25 km away, who heard his call for help and pulled him out of the river. Later the police introduced him to his family.
The woman, a resident of Dera of Litchi in Sharda Nagar, had gone to her farm on Thursday evening and fell into the Kilander drain. After falling into the stream, she was swept away by a strong current that took her to the Yamuna River. Despite her crying out for help, no one was around to save her.
Fortunately, he saw a wooden log of the ‘Babylon’ tree floating and caught it to float in the river. On Friday morning, her harsh cry attracted local sailors, who brought her to the riverbank.
Soon, in Manki village under Kurara police station of Hamirpur district, the sailors informed the village watchman Ramjeevan, who informed the Haraulipur police outpost in-charge Bharat Yadav. The latter admitted the woman to the hospital and informed the woman’s son Rahul, daughter Vinita in Jalaun, who were taken to the hospital.
After much effort, the police handed over the woman to her family members.
Speaking to reporters at her home, Jai Devi, who was yet to recover from the trauma, said that she could not believe how she escaped the jaws of death.
Haraulipur police outpost in-charge Bharat Yadav said on Saturday, ‘It is nothing but God’s’ Miracle. With whom God is present, there can be no harm to him.
