Mangalore, Aug 30, 2014:  Reports have been received  that a doctor couple and their daughter, from  Badiadka in Kasargod, were on a visit to Hanneradu Kavalu.  Surprisingly the  Soham mini hydel project at Hanneradu Kavalu, at Moodabidri were opened Friday August 29 while the family was at the spot. They however escaped the rapidly gushing water with their lives by a hairs breadth.

Witnesses state that the three got down into the water near the dam. All of a sudden, the dam gates opened, without warning, and water gushed with great force. The couple and their child were swept away.

They were rescued from the water after heroically hanging on to a log that was afloat on the water. Alarms were raised by people in the vicinity and the flow of water was fortunately reduced by the dam officials.


It was stated that locals complained that the water from the dam is often released  without any warning and safety measures at the spot are inadequate posing serious danger to human life.
