A youth from Halol named Bharat Bhatti went to Maa Kaali temple located at the peak of Pavagadh. On his way back his leg slipped and he went down rolling in the 3000 feet deep gorge on Pavagadh hill. Lucky was he as he grabbed some bushes and found a small rock on which he could rest. He tried and called one of his friends who later informed the entire incident to Bharat’s family.
The firemen and district administration reached the spot later. They tried to locate Bharat by failed to do so as he couldn’t specify his exact location. By Saturday night, Vadodara firemen too joined the rescue efforts along with city-based mountaineers.
However, due to heavy fog the operation was suspended for few hours. By Sunday morning Bharat was located and with great efforts was rescued after 20 hours.
However, he was completely tired and upset and also suffered fracture on his hands and some other minor injured. Hence, he was rushed to a nearby hospital as soon as he was pulled out from the deep gorge.
