A woman tried to end her life by jumping into a well, but got entangled in some undergrowth inside and was finally rescued by the fire brigade yesterday

Informing about the incident fireman Mangesh Milwane said, “We got a call around 4.30 pm that someone had leapt into a well and we reached the spot within minutes. Our officer Kedar Rajaram tied a rope around himself and went inside. After reaching the spot, Rajaram attached another rope to her and our personnel pulled her up.” 


In a separate incident a couple seated on the branch of a tree near a quarry at Lohegaon fell in, but fire brigade officials’ swift action saved their lives. “Firemen from Bhavani Peth reached Kalwad quarry after being informed. Two people had fallen inside. Rajaram took the plunge and rescued the couple,” said Milwane.
