A disturbing video circulated online this week shows two drunk men plunging into a 2,000 feet deep gorge in the western Indian state of Maharashtra. The incident took place Aug. 1 at Kawale Saad Point in Amboli Ghat, a popular picnic spot in the state, and was filmed by their friends.

“Imran Garadi (26) and Pratap Rathod (21), who were part of a group of seven, fell into the valley. Their bodies are yet to be recovered,” the Indian Express reported citing Sunil Dhanawade, Senior Police Inspector of Sawantwadi police station.

Police said the victims and their friends worked at a poultry farm in Kolhapur, located around 74 miles from the scene of the accident.

In the video, the two men can be seen apparently trying to perform some daring stunt while shaking and moving in an unstable manner. At times, they sat on the railing, swaying their feet while their friends kept filming. The victims' friends also tried to caution the drunk men but they seemed to be too inebriated to pay any heed to the warnings.

As both of them cross the railing with one of them holding a bottle in hand, and stand on the cliff, their friends start shouting at them. However, one of the men eventually loses his footing and grabs the other man and both fall into the gorge.

Police were informed about the incident by locals and shopkeepers who also sought help from a local trekkers' group called Hill Riders Group to search for the victims. Police said although the bodies were spotted down in the valley, they are yet to be recovered and heavy rains were just adding to the difficulty of the rescue team.

There have also been questions raised over the person who filmed the video. "We will also question the person who shot this video; he could have easily saved them," Mid-day reported quoting Dhanawade.

Accidents are not unheard of in Amboli Ghat as there are deep gorges in the region. In February, a car shot off the road and fell 25 feet at midnight, when the driver lost control of the vehicle, a report said.

In July 2016, a youth died by falling into the valley at Amboli Ghat.

Amboli, located in the princely state of Sawantwadi, is called the "Queen" of Maharashtra due to its natural splendor. It is also famous among environmentalists as it is a precious ecological hotspot. During monsoon season, locals as well as tourists flock there to enjoy the impromptu waterfalls gushing down the hilly terrains, according to the website of Maharashtra Tourism.

The hill station is well-connected by roads, a railway station and the closest airport is at Dabolim in Goa. It is situated at an altitude of 2,263 meters above sea level and is blessed with dense greenery and waterfalls, which contributes to it being seen as an attractive tourist spot.
