Yesterday, the whole country came to a standstill when a chairlift broke in the middle of the air in Allai, Battagram. The chairlift had 8 people including 7 kids and one teacher. The people in the area have to use the chairlift everyday due to lack of infrastructure. As hue and cry grew on the social media, Pakistan Air Force deployed two helicopters while SSG Commandos also joined in to rescue the hanging people. After nearly 12 hours of effort, only one child was rescued and that is when the ground operation started and local hero Sahib Khan came in.
Sahib Khan used slings and a locally made cart while he was assisted by a special team flown in from Mansehra. Rscue 1122 was also standing on the ground for the people being rescued and they were finally able to get everyone back on the ground and the whole nation took a sigh of relief.
Here is how Sahib Khan rescued the people and the problems that came in the helicopter plan:
Celebrities are applauding the heroes as they were thankful that everyone was rescued:
