22-Yr-Old Drowns To Death While Shooting TikTok Video In Lake
Hyderabad: A 22-year-old youth drowned in a lake on the outskirts of Hyderabad, while shooting a TikTok mobile video, the police said.
The incident took place on Tuesday evening, but came to light only on Thursday when the Pet Basheerabad police registered a case and seized the videos.
According to the police, Narasimha of Sangareddy district in Telangana state, visited his cousin Prashant’s house at Dulapalli village of Qutbullapur block on the outskirts of Hyderabad on Tuesday.
Both of them went to the Tumar lake to shoot videos on their mobiles, which they later wanted to upload on TikTok.
“After a minute, Narasimha tried to go a little deeper into the water, but apparently didn’t notice a deep trench beneath the water. He slipped into the trench and could not come out as he did not know swimming,” Pet Basheerabad police inspector M Mahesh said.
There were a number of people around the lake watching Narasimha drowning. Some locals made an attempt to bring him out, but in vain.
Meanwhile, the body was fished out from the lake on Wednesday morning. A case of death under suspicious circumstances has been registered by the police.
