Diamer: On Thursday, the Pakistan Army saved thirteen people trapped in Bahsal. The incident occurred due to heavy and unexpected snowfall.
The rescued people live in the Bahsal area of Diamer, which is a district of the Gilgit-Baltistan region of Pakistan. These saved people include seven children and six women.
The mishap occurred when these people, along with the cattle, moved up to the area for summer but got trapped because of the unexpected snowfall.
A day before, a similar incident took place where twelve workers got trapped and stuck in the snow in Bahsal but figured a way out by themselves.
The thick layers of snow covered the roads in some other parts of Gilgit Baltistan as well, due to which the roads were closed for commute on Thursday.
In Deosai, however, the army personnel rescued the wildlife officials and the tourists. These rescued people are to be flown to Skardu which is a place located at a 40km distance from deosai.
Work, on the other hand, is underway to rescue the stranded tourists in Naran. Bilal Faizi, who is a spokesperson of the Rescue 1122 states that the rescue 1122 has sent aid for the tourists who are stuck and stranded. This aid includes teams, ambulances and paramedics.
In contrast with the tourists who are stuck, those who stayed inside and in their hotels enjoyed the weather and snow.
Professor Shahid Naseem is a tourist who on Geo news said that the beauty of Naran valley increased due to the snowfall and people wanted to see and witness the snow and that they did.
Another view of a tourist named Riaz was that he said people who admire and praise the beauty of Europe, should visit Pakistan to see the bounties of nature.
