Couple rescued off Bandra promenade


Mumbai: The fire brigade and local fishermen rescued a youth and his fiancee after they were stranded in the sea off Carter Road promenade on Sunday noon. The Khar police let them off with a warning. According to the police, Deepak Kumar (25) and Sarita (18) ventured close to the sea. 
    "The two were sitting on a rock and got stranded due to the rising tide. They were surrounded by water and lost their balance," said a police officer. 
    "They were floundering and screamed for help. Another couple sitting nearby spotted them and called up the police control room," he added. The police alerted the fire brigade. Later, fishermen and fire department personnel managed to rescue 
the two. Kumar (25) resides in Vashi while Sarita (18) is a Santa Cruz resident. "The two confessed that since it was their first visit to the seafront, they were unaware of the danger of rising tides," the officer said. The Khar police made a diary entry of the incident and verified their details before allowing them to go. Last year, the police put up boards at severalplaces warning youngsters not too close to the sea. "We patrol the area and warn people about the danger," said an official.
