Raging flood waters left two fishermen stranded in the middle of a river on Monday near the Devari dam in India's central Madhya Pradesh state.

They were caught in flash floods in the Daksan River while fishing and perched themselves on a rock in the middle of a swollen river as they anxiously awaited rescue.

After being trapped for hours, district officials managed to organise a cable car to bring them safely ashore.

Several parts of northern India are reeling under floods following heavy monsoon rains.
