A 22-year-old guy drowned in a pond to the outskirts of Hyderabad while posing for a video he wanted to upload social media program TikTok.
According to the police, two cousins, recognized as Prashant and Narasimhulu, residents of Sangareddy district had come to Dhulapally pond in Petbasheerabad village Tuesday to have a bath and take a TikTok video.
They took selfies while dancing in the pond. After some time, Prashant got back into the coast to shoot some more videos of Narasimha.
The authorities said Narasimha did not know swimming and was not aware of the depth of the pond. “Narasimha attempted to go a little deeper into the sport, but apparently did not notice a deep trench under the water. He slipped into the trench and could not come out since he didn’t understand swimming,” M Mahesh, Pet Basheerabad police inspector, was quoted as saying by Hindustan Times.
The police reached the spot and recovered the body, which was later sent for post mortem.
A case was filed for departure under suspicious conditions.
