Moment Residents Attempted To Rescue Man Swept Away By Flood In Abule-Egba, Lagos



A yet-to-be-identified man has been reportedly swept away by flood in the Abule-Egba area of Lagos State.

It was gathered that the incident happened on Monday morning, September 19, 2022, after the downpour.

Witnesses said the man got trapped in a hole covered with water and all efforts to pull him out proved abortive.

A video of locals trying to pull him out of the water while dragging his hand in an attempt to save him has been shared online.

“This happened at Abule Egba junction at exactly 9:30 this morning. The flood must have been sweeping him from a different location because it was just his hand that we saw inside gutter.
