Flash flooding in northern India sweeps local resident away

Flash flooding in the Indian city of Ajmer swept away a local resident and several vehicles on Thursday after heavy rains turned main roads into fast-flowing rivers.

This clip shows torrents of water carrying off a man, an auto-rickshaw and a bicycle.

According to local reports, the man was hauled from the water after floating about 100 metres downstream.

More than 250 people have died in monsoon floods across India in the past few weeks, with Assam and Bihar states in the north the worst hit.
