    My heartfelt condolences, According to reports she could not be saved because of lied seat belts. During time of accidents victims could not be saved because they were stuck between seats and other parts of the vehicle along with seat belts. In bikes/two wheelers no seat belt rule, in buses/trucks no seat belt rule, in trains no seat belt rule, In planes seat belt rule is there because it flies in the air, IN CARS WHO BROUGHT THIS COMPULSORY SEAT BELT RULE ?

    It should be compulsory to wear seat belt for both, driver and co passenger who sits next to the driver in the front row. I supports this rule as I do drive. Unfortunately, here Diana many not be knowing how to untie her seat belt or the vehicle when fallen down from the bridge to the river, it might have tilted in her side; she might be got wounded internally.


    Always when one wear the seat belt, should be trained how to untie the seat belt too. Our people knows theory more than practical. Sorry to write this, in this platform.

    Husband lost his wife and children lost their Mother within no time, without any clue when they were very happy. Its very paining incident. She entered Mascarenhas family as a bride with all the ornaments and red Saado and left this World also in the same way, may be God's wish. May the love and mercy of our Lord be bestowed upon this family during this unfortunate time and may the departed soul of this pretty woman Diana rest in peace. Hats off to the villagers who tried to save them by extending timely help.

    Sad incident - R.I.P.
    Big salute to the local heroes who have saved three lives.
    Politics may divide us but the spirit of being Indian makes us to be together.
    Many a times the locals stand as real heroes in rendering their first aid to those who are in danger and sometime risking their own life. Especially the mogaveera community is well known in such circumstances.
