In a similar incident that occurred last month, a pregnant woman from Neemuch district of Madhya Pradesh was reportedly transported to a healthcare centre in a JCB machine. This occurred as a result of the torrential rains that pounded areas of Madhya Pradesh, turning the local roadways into rivers.
