Indian families fetch water from 50-foot well in drought-hit village
This is the moment 80 families of a village in southern India rush to draw water from a 50-feet well risking their lives during an ongoing drought. All the water sources in Chimmegaon village near Bidar in Karnataka state have dried up due to a severe drought. Residents say local government officials had been supplying water through tankers, which also stopped inexplicably in April. A tanker unexpectedly arrived and started filling a well with water on May 5. Footage shows the thirsty villagers fetching water from a well using ropes to pull out jars filled with water. A local villager Basavaraja Naik said: โ€˜โ€™This happens each time a tanker fills up the well with water. There is a stampede to get water as we do not know when the next tanker will come.โ€™โ€™ A senior district official Mahadev told local reporters that he would find out why the water supply through tankers had been erratic and would resolve the problem. โ€œPeople should not panic,โ€ he said.
