In a heart-stopping incident on the Mandi-Kullu national highway, the ongoing restoration work following a landslide took a dangerous turn when massive boulders came cascading down onto an excavator machine. The terrifying episode, captured on video by locals, unfolded on Monday, sending shockwaves through the region.

The section of the highway was already grappling with the aftermath of a landslide when the incident occurred. Workers were actively engaged in clearing the debris and restoring the route when a sudden rockfall threatened their safety.

The chilling video footage shows workers huddled around the excavator, unaware of the impending disaster. As the boulders come hurtling down, panic ensues, but a stroke of luck intervenes. The driver of the excavator, displaying quick thinking and reflexes, manages to leap out of the vehicle just seconds before a colossal rock slab slams onto it, crushing the heavy machinery beyond recognition.

Local witnesses gasped in disbelief as the dramatic sequence of events unfolded before their eyes. Thanks to the driver’s timely exit and the workers’ attempts to seek shelter, a catastrophe was narrowly averted.

Authorities were swift to respond to the situation. The Mandi-Kullu national highway was immediately closed to ensure the safety of commuters and workers in the area. A team of rescue personnel, along with engineers, arrived promptly at the scene to assess the damage and devise a strategy for clearing the highway.

Officials have reiterated the importance of adhering to safety protocols in such treacherous terrains, where natural calamities like landslides pose a constant threat. The incident serves as a stark reminder of the risks involved in restoration work and the need for utmost caution during such operations.

As of now, no casualties or injuries have been reported, much to the relief of the local community and authorities. However, the incident has triggered discussions about the safety measures employed during restoration efforts in landslide-prone areas.
