Border Security Force (BSF) personnel on Tuesday rescued a civilian from being swept away by the powerful current of the Mendki river in the Kanker district of Chhattisgarh.

A video shared by BSF Command Raipur on Twitter showed the BSF personnel pulling the civilian out from the river. The man had gone fishing when he fell into the river and was fighting for his life.

The video started with BSF personnel throwing a rope towards one of their colleagues who had approached the river. This soldier tied the rope to the civilian's body as those above pulled him up. The person who recorded the video, in relief, said, "Jaan bach gayi".

BSP Command Raipur tweeted, "BSF national-level swimmer SI Biju Kumar pulled him out to safety with the help of jawans."

More details regarding the civilian's condition after the rescue operation are awaited.
