Monsoon season flooding kills over 25 people in two days in Nepal
Monsoon season forced a villager to carry livestock on his shoulder as he moved them to safer ground to rescue them from flooding that has killed over 25 people in two days.
He was spotted wading through waters in Topa Village in the Saptari district of Nepal today, where torrential monsoons have caused fatal landslides.
Thousands have been affected as the second day of heavy rain hit the region, where a woman and her child were photographed watching water levels rise up around their home.
One man was seen struggling to lead cows through the chest-high water using a rope, as a woman shifted her goats from the area.
Rajbiraj, also in the district, has been hit with heavy rain too as home ministry spokesman Deepak Kafle told AFP that over a dozen eastern and western areas were affected.
