In a shocking incident, two young men in an inebriated state have fallen into a 2,000-feet deep gorge while attempting a daredevil stunt. The mishap happened at Kawale Saad Point in Amboli Ghat, a famous picnic spot in Maharashtra on Monday evening. The disturbing scene was recorded on camera by their friends.
Senior police officer Sunil Dhanawade told NDTV that the bodies of the youth – Imran Garadi, 26 and Pratap Rathod, 21- are yet to be recovered. Though the bodies were spotted in the valley, heavy rain and mist are causing the delay in the operation.
The two deceased were part of a seven-member group who were working at a poultry farm in Kolhapur. On Monday, Imran and Pratap had decided to stay back a little while at the spot.

They sat on the railing for a while and then backed off many times but finally climbed over it and stood on the edge. Suddenly, one of them slipped off the rock. He held the other to save himself but ended up dragging him down. They both fall into the void.
