Eyewitnesses then rush towards the manhole to see what happened as a few men try to come up with a plan to lift the woman out of the deep drain safely. According to reports from the area, the woman was fortunately rescued by the locals.
Local media reported that the manhole was open due to some sewage work but it was not closed after that. However, the delay in its execution has allegedly led to several such accidents. Though many on social media said that the woman should have been more careful, they also pointed out that no signs had been put up near the open manhole to alert passersby.
However, the most important lesson to draw from this is that, while on the street, never get distracted by your phone. In fact, all your faculties should be focussed on what is happening around you rather than on the phone. Whether it is walking, cycling, driving or doing any other activity outside the house, do not get onto your phone.
