The monsoon has reached Mumbai and like every year, the situation in the financial capital of the country is pathetic once again as the roads have got flooded just after the first rain and things seem to deteriorate further as the monsoon progresses.
For many years, we have been hearing that people fell in the main holes of the road as they were not able to see them due to water-logging but recently a weird incident came into light as a whole car got drowned in the water-filled hole. The video of the incident was shot by an eye-witness and it is going viral on the social media networks.
Here is the video:

The incident took place in Mumbai’s Ghatkopar and as per the traffic police, there used to be a well over there which was covered by the concrete slabs and the space was being used by people for parking cars.

Due to heavy rains, the land got subsided and the car got drowned into water but luckily no person has been reported as injured.

The video went viral instantly and it also gave enough fodder to meme makers for displaying their creativity as a result of which the micro-blogging site Twitter soon got flooded with memes and jokes. While some comparing it with Parle-G’s dip in tea, few others are questioning as to why the person who made the video did nothing to get help for the car.
Check out some of the selected reactions:

Some reports have suggested that the car belongs to a 67 years old Dr. Kiran Doshi and the video has also been shot by him. The car has been taken out of the well now as the BMC officials first pumped the water out of the well and after locating the car, it was pulled out using crane.

Hopefully, BMC will ensure that any incident of this type does not take place again in Mumbai again.
