A 27-year-old Andheri resident, Aishwarya Dhalgade, miraculously survived a 400-feet fall from Peb Fort in Karjat taluka, located on the foothills of Matheran. The incident occurred on Saturday afternoon, following a successful trek by a group of five individuals.

SOS call to local police control room

The group, consisting of residents from Andheri and Thane, had visited the Ganpati temple en route to Peb Fort. The accident took place around 1 pm, prompting an immediate SOS call to the police control room.

Matheran police, assisted by the Sahyadri rescue team, forest personnel, and local tribals, conducted a challenging rescue operation between 1.30 pm and 8 pm. Negotiating varied slopes, the rescuers descended using ropes and a stretcher to reach Dhalgade.

Currently undergoing treatment at Patkar Hospital in Badlapur, Dhalgade is recovering from the harrowing incident. Matheran police assistant inspector Shekhar Lavhe stated that the rescue operation was carried out despite the incident being reported under the Panvel taluka police station of Navi Mumbai police commissionerate, owing to the geographical location.
