Accident near the village: Eighthta is a very small village. There are three ways to reach the village, but due to waterlogging on all the routes, it has lost its connectivity with other villages. Boats have been arranged by the administration for the movement of people. The distance of the market from the eighteenth village is only about two hundred meters, but the deep gap in the middle made many far away from their loved ones. People looking at each other face to face cannot even believe that such a big accident has happened so close to the village.
Children had insisted on boarding the boat : When the people of Eighththa village were going by boat to Nauli market, their children also started insisting on seeing the boat. His relatives also refused, but due to his insistence, made everyone sit. There was also Satyam, the son of Dabloo God. While Dablu has died, Satyam is still missing. The relatives of all the missing children are sitting gazing that perhaps their beloved will be saved.

Everyone kept discussing this incident, whoever saw this scene, his heart trembled. People gathered at Nauli Chatti till late in the evening.
When the DM-SP arrived, there was a gathering : After the Chief Minister’s program was over, late in the evening, District Magistrate Mangala Prasad Singh and Superintendent of Police Rohan P. Botre arrived with full force. Due to such a big accident and late arrival of the top officials, a huge crowd of people gathered on the spot. The people kept demanding from both the top officials to give proper help to the victim’s relatives.
saved 22 people : As soon as a small boat full of 30 people who were going to their home eighty-five by boat sank, dozens of villagers present there jumped to the rescue as angels. In this, most people had tires and tubes, with the help of which they swam and took people out of deep water. According to eyewitnesses, everyone was going happily after boarding the boat. As soon as the boat departed from Nauli, it overturned at some distance. The people standing there were shocked to see this. People were thinking that Ajit, Santosh, Arvind, Dashrath, Bhual, Pradumna, Rakesh, Rambaran, who were present there, jumped into the water to save the drowned people. In view of the flood, the villagers were keeping tires and tubes around, which came in very handy. Seeing the screams of drowning people, no one present there could stop himself. Due to the short distance and the flow of water, some people automatically came to the shore, Which the villagers pulled out. At the same time, with the help of tires and tubes, the youths not only rescued the drowning people but also brought them out to their homes. Everyone who was listening to this act of the youth was applauding.
A small canoe with a population of three thousand: Describing all the instructions of the Chief Minister regarding the flood, the Sevarai Tehsil administration sent a small boat for the villagers, which became a time for the villagers. The flood waters have entered the village Aththa with a population of about three thousand. The Sewrai tehsil administration had provided a canoe for the village, from which people used to move to Nauli market, 200 meters away, to buy goods. Villagers say that the boat was small and the men on it, A total of 30 people were aboard, carrying women and children. Being small, the boat could not bear the weight of the people and started to wobble only after going some distance. By the time people could recover the boat capsized and people started drowning. The villagers expressed their displeasure over the fact that the administrative officials of the tehsil kept on claiming preparations for the flood only in the air. Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath, who came to meet the flood victims in Muhammadabad on Wednesday, not only alerted the administrative officials but also instructed them not to be negligent at any level, but the officers did not learn from it. Maybe this is the reason why the accident happened.
