Three people were struggling in the water for help.At that time, the river was in the period of low tide, the flow of the water was so quick that the drowning people had drifted along with the river for some distance.
Zhao Wei wasted no time in asking for help of five Bangladesh labourers, who were working on the boat. He then threw a rope, rescued the drowning persons and sent them to the temporary jetty.
It is understood that the three persons took a small wooden boat to take pictures of the Kazal River. However, the current was turbulent and the boat overturned, causing the three to fall into the water.
