ISLAMABAD: A group of friends, who were travelling from the scenic valleys of Kaghan suffered a tragedy as their car plunged hundreds of metres into the Kunhar river on Friday. One man managed to survive miraculously. According to police and eyewitnesses, the group of friends, who apparently hail from Narowal, were visiting the Naran Valley. While returning, the driver of the car lost control of the wheels on Shahrahe Kaghan near Hotar Mahandry and the vehicle plunged into the river. The friends including Aon, Arsalan, Nadeem, Hasnain Shafiq and Muhammad Ahmed and the vehicle drowned in the rapids. However, the river apparently spat Ahmed back up and he was rescued.
