In the incident that occurred at about 5.30pm, the victim was said to be installing ropes in the flooded area to help the villagers get out of their homes safely.

He was later said to have fainted due to the water current that was too heavy. However, the life jacket he wore prevented him from being swept away by the current to farther places.
