The group of friends became stranded on the river in the Sagar district of Madhya Pradesh when the water level suddenly rose due to heavy rainfall upstream.

Footage showed them clinging together desperately trying not to be washed away.

After four hours of waiting, rescuers from the State Disaster Response Fund reached them by boat and hauled the youngsters to safety.
