A day after at least five people were killed in Bengaluru rains, a terrifying video has surfaced on social media showing a woman trapped in a car that is being swept away by the waters.

The video clip shows a white car, with its bonnet under water, floating dangerously on the flooded road. Horrified bystanders can be heard exclaiming that there is a woman trapped in the car. It is then that they jump into the waist-deep water to rescue the woman. Four men then rescue the trapped woman from the car, and bring her to safety.

According to reports, three men in the group were police personnel. The incident reportedly took place at Nayandahalli in Bengaluru on Friday night.

On Friday night, a couple was killed in a wall collapse and three people – two women and a priest – were washed away in storm water drains in Kurubarahalli and Laggere areas of Bengaluru. BBMP officials said that Vasudev, a priest at a temple in Basaveshwaranagar, was washed away by an overflowing storm water drain at around 7 pm on Friday. His body has since been recovered.

In Kurubarahalli 18th cross, a married couple – Shankarappa and Kamalamma – died when their compound wall collapsed on them.

In Laggere's Kempegowda Layout, Meenakshi (55) and her 22-year-old daughter were washed away in a storm water drain.

Bengaluru is set to witness more rains over the course of the next two days. The rains have left the city battered. While a short spell of rain leaves roads inundated, motorists are forced to navigate potholed roads and endure traffic jams, even as residents have to wade through water.
