In an extremely dangerous and challenging situation, Pakistan army aviation pilots rescued a stranded individual surrounded by a flood in Kohistan, the Inter-Services Public Relations (ISPR) reported.
The military’s media wing revealed that an emergency call was made by the Kohistan administration. Responding immediately, GOC Mangla Division and Commander Mangla Brigade who were on a flood assessment mission near Pattan diverted from their original flight to save the precious life.
“Had they not reached on time the individual could have drowned in flood,” the ISPR said.
The pilots made the daring attempt, to lower the helicopter while the officers and crew lifted the individual safely.
“Pakistan Army and Pakistan army aviation keeping in with their traditions will not hesitate to save their brothers and sisters in line with chief of army staff’s vision that people of Pakistan are our priority and we won’t rest until every single individual is reached and helped,” the ISPR said.
