A boat at Harni Lake, Vadodara, capsized while transporting schoolchildren. When the accident occurred, the boat carried more passengers than it could hold.
On Thursday, the boat carrying at least six schoolchildren capsized in Gujarat's Harni Lake outside of Vadodara.
There were 27 pupils on the boat and their professors who had come to the periphery for a picnic.
Ten of the missing pupils were found thanks to a search and rescue effort. According to Gujarat Education Minister Kuber Dindor, members from the fire department and the NDRF have been called in to assist with the search.
In Harni Lake in the afternoon, a boat full of schoolchildren who had come for a picnic capsized.
According to Vadodara's chief fire officer, Parth Brahmbhatt, “the fire brigade has so far rescued seven students, while a search is on for the missing ones.”
Before the fire department workers arrived, some locals saved a few kids.
Strict action would be taken against the person(s) accountable for the incident, according to Vadodara MP Ranjanben Dhananjay Bhatt.
According to the MP, the saved students were transferred to other hospitals. There was too much cargo for the boat to hold.
The families of the youngsters who died were sent condolences by Chief Minister Bhupendra Patel. "It is tragic that youngsters drowned in Vadodara's Harni Lake after a boat overturned.
I offer prayers for the souls of the defenseless kids who perished. My sincere sympathies are with their families during this difficult time. May the Almighty and Gracious God grant them the fortitude to endure this loss.
Right now, efforts are being made to save the teachers and pupils who are trapped on the boat. The chief minister wrote on X that the system is directed to give the accident victims emergency care and relief.
In this accident, many pupils are still missing. The administration and government of Gujarat should speed up relief and rescue efforts and do everything within their power to preserve the lives of the youngsters.
We offer our sincere condolences to the deceased families during this time of sorrow.
The youngsters from New Sunrise School in Panigate were reportedly accompanied by a few instructors.
Around 4:30 pm., they arrived at the lake for a picnic and got on a boat. There were 27 people on the boat, even though it looked like it could only hold 16. Whether they were donning life jackets is yet unknown.
