Meanwhile after reachingthe scenein a few moments, CT PAWAN KUMAR jumped into the river and found that a small girl namely Yogita, 5 years, D/O Mayaram and Radhika  devi has already drown and rescued her from the bottom on the river bed.

He lifted her up and kept in the boat. CT MUKESH SINGH moved the boat in full speed towards the medical camp of C team NDRF which is almost 450 mtrs away and CT PAWAN KUMAR started the PHT in boat itself.
