    This news is full of misinformation. Firstly Sam was not from MS palya but from Coles Park, secondly they went in an Activa scooty not a car. Third the falls was shallow and it did not have any chance of having whirlpool. Just get facts checked and then publish. If you are doing a journalist’s job then do it correctly or else please don’t. Don’t tarnish someone’s name with misinformations
