Ukraine, ta. Friday, February 11, 2022
A very painful incident happened on Sunday in the Dnipropetrovsk region of Ukraine. A man named Sikandar jumped into an icy river without thinking about the current of the water and died in front of his wife. He asked his wife to remove the video and jumped into the iced-over Chortomelik river.
This stunt proved to be quite fatal for him and he drowned even after many people tried to save him. In the video of this incident which took place at a temperature of around -5 degree Celsius, Sikander is talking to his wife. His wife asks, ‘Aren’t you afraid of Sanya (Alexander)?’
In response he says no, I am not afraid. The wife later asks, “Don’t you feel cold?” Then he says ‘no’. She asks again, “Aren’t your feet getting cold?” In his reply, he insisted that no. His wife continues, ‘Oh my God, I can’t stand it, it’s so cold.. It’s cold.. Oh my God, I hope you don’t get sick.’
While she is filming, Sikander drowns and disappears into the muddy waters of the river. She gets scared and seeks help from the people around her. His friend tries to dig a hole in the snow with a chain but it is too late to save him. According to local reports, he died in the snow.
He died after the rescue team fell into the river. The next day his body was found at a depth of about 70 feet 13 feet from the shore.
