MUMBAI: A dramatic footage of a family, sitting atop a car submerged underwater, being rescued with rope by locals has emerged from Navi Mumbai's Taloja area.

In the footage, four members of a family are seen sitting on the roof of a vehicle which is completely submerged under flood water.

Few locals are seen trying to rescue the family to safety with the help of a rope.

According to reports, the women were first rescued, followed by the men.

The vehicle was caught in the rapidly flowing waters of a river canal.

Nearly half a dozen districts in North and Central Maharashtra received a good spell of showers today with authorities releasing water from the Gangapur dam into the Godavari river in Nashik. Parbhani, Ahmednagar, Nashik, Aurangabad and Nanded districts received bountiful rains.
