On Tuesday, January 18, 2022, Indian Army forces rescued 14 people who had become stuck owing to twin avalanches on the Tangdar-Chowkibal route in Jammu and Kashmir.

The Tangdhar-Chowkibal road was closed by avalanches generated by snow on Tuesday morning, stranding 14 residents, including a kid.

Among the civilians saved was a severely ill heart patient.

They were subsequently transported to a nearby army camp, where they were fed and kept warm.

"Army's avalanche rescue team from Neelum Company Operating Base under Captain Kuljot Singh along with GREF immediately swung into action after information about the stranded vehicles full of passengers, including women, children and elderly was received," the Army said in a statement.
