School bus stuck in water, car swept away as rains batter city

A school bus was stuck in the middle of an inundated road in Trimulgherry, while a car was partially swept into a canal at the same spot on Friday due to the impact of torrential rains that have lashed Hyderabad from Saturday night. The school bus, ferrying children of DRS International School, apparently had a battery problem after it passed through waist high water running across the road near Manasarovar Heights in Trimulgherry around 7.30 am.

Earlier, around 2.30am, a car that was attempting to cross the same spot was swept off the road into the drainage canal, but held from being washed away by a safety net that had been put across the canal. The driver managed to get out of the car, local residents said.

As for the students in the school bus, another bus was called in and they were shifted to safety after having to wait for about an hour. The canal has been overflowing dangerously whenever it rains heavily. Tuesday night’s rains had caused a similar situation with two cars getting stuck at the same point late in the night.

Across the city, the rains continued till early morning, with the rainfall surpassing Tuesday night’s rainfall by a huge margin.
