A dramatic CCTV video of car plunging into a river from a bridge has emerged from Madhya Pradesh's Orchha. The video shows a white colour car hit an autorickshaw on a bridge with no railing losing balance. The car driver fails to control the vehicle as it takes the plunge into a river below. The car turtles before making a nosedive in the river. 

The incident has been reported from Madhya Pradesh's Niwari district. There were five people of a family in the car which also included a toddler. Locals then jumped in the river which had waist-deep water to save the family. 

The video also shows family members throwing the toddler towards the bridge in a desperate attempt to save but the kid falls into the river. The boy, however, was later saved as some good samaritans jumped for rescue. The family members were also rescued with locals throwing themselves without wasting any time.

All the members of the car were taken to a hospital. Here's the video of the car making the plunge in the river.
