A video posted on social media shows the moment when forest agents from the Indian state of Tamil Nadu rescue a woman and her child, trapped by floods in the Anaivari waterfalls, in the Salem district, informs The Indian Express.

In the recording, a woman is seen sitting on a rock holding her baby near the gushing waters while several men approach them. Rescue officers carefully lift the boy and then the woman with a rope.

However, at the end of the video, two men helping forest officers lose their balance and fall into the water. Both reportedly swam across the river and are safe.

Salem District Forestry Officer K. Gowthamel confirmed that no deaths or injuries were recorded after the incident.

Landslides and floods caused by heavy rains have already left many fatalities in the country and last week their number rose to 41.
