The country has been showering praises on the Navy for its rescue efforts across the flood-hit state. On Sunday, August 19, a chopper manned by the Indian Navy rescue team attempted a daring stunt when it landed on a narrow rooftop. They landed and rescued an 80-year-old woman.
The Navy rescue team, a few days ago, airlifted a pregnant lady from her swamped home in Alapuzha, after her water broke. The woman gave birth to a boy a few hours after the timely rescue.
