In an example of humanity, people of Pune gave way to an ambulance during the massive Ganesh idol immersion procession on Thursday.

Thousands of devotees, soaked in religious fervour, were taking the Ganesh idol for immersion when the emergency vehicle got stuck in the crowd at Laxmi Road, Pune. Seeing the ambulance, people moved aside creating a corridor to allow the ambulance to pass through.

The incident was caught on camera, winning applause on social media.

According to the recently announced new traffic rules, one has to pay a fine of Rs 10,000 for not giving way to the ambulance and other emergency vehicles.

Earlier this year, during Puri Rath Yatra devotees, showed a similar gesture by creating a way for the medical van.
