In a similar incident that took place earlier this month, a Mahindra Bolero had a narrow escape when trying to cross an overflowing canal under heavy downpour in Madhya Pradesh's Ujjain. The Bolero got swept away in overflowing canal water despite it being a rugged and tough SUV. With some luck, the three occupants managed to make their way to safety.

Attempts were made to rescue the floating vehicle using ropes but the endeavor proved to be unsuccessful. While the driver and occupants of the vehicle managed to get out of the Bolero, the SUV itself was swept with a high degree of force.

Also, as India witnesses monsoon showers across states, there have been reports of vehicles stuck in lengthy traffic jams in cities like Delhi and Mumbai recently. Traffic snarls and water-logging are the most common issues reported from these cities after a rain shower (See pics here).
