PM Modi's alertness saved the life of Doordarshan cameraman
Prime Minister Narendra Modi's alertness during the inauguration of Saurashtra Narmada Avataran Irrigation (SAUNI) project in Jamnagar, Gujarat saved the life of a Doordarshan cameraman from being swept away on Tuesday. The Prime Minister was at a function to release the water of Aji dam when he saw a cameraman standing close to the dam and alerted him.
Realising what the Prime Minister was pointing out, the cameraman seems to have moved away in the nick of time. Photographs from the incident show that the camera was later washed away by the water released from the dam. The tripod and camera were later recovered, ANI reported.
In the visuals from the incident, PM Modi and Gujarat Chief Minister Vijay Rupani can be seen pointing at something off the frame. Here is the video from the incident: https://twitter.com/ANI_news/status/770602584352497665
