People Rescue a Truck – level 3

18-01-2021 07:00

Footage shared on social media captured a unique rescue operation when hundreds of villagers from a community in India´s Nagaland state pulled a truck out of a gorge after it fell 21 meters from a narrow road.

The local village administration had requested fit and healthy men from the village to join the mass rescue effort in the village of Kutsapo. Because no machinery was available, villagers used ropes and vines, singing as they worked, and they eventually pulled the truck up a steep bank and onto the road above.

According to local reports, the driver of the truck wasn´t hurt when his vehicle crashed down into the gorge.

Difficult words: gorge (a narrow valley between hills or mountains), machinery (all machines available at a place), vine (a plant that has long slender stems that climb other trees to get support).
