Fortunately, four men from Kollam who were in the car have been successfully rescued, with two of them sustaining minor injuries, according to a report by Manorama News.

The unfortunate incident occurred near the forest department’s office in Ponmudi, specifically on the 22nd curve, during the morning hours. The passengers were en route to Kollam after enjoying their time at the popular tourist spot. In a collaborative effort, the police, forest department, and local residents worked together to carry out the rescue operation. However, the operation faced challenges due to the thick fog that enveloped the area.
