A bad video, which went viral on Thursday, shows two men in allegedly under the influence of alcohol falling to their death at Amboli Ghat in Sindhudurg, Maharashtra. The mishap happened at Kawale Saad Point in Amboli Ghat, a famous picnic spot in Maharashtra on Monday evening. Rain, water cascading down the hill and mist were making it hard to retrieve the bodies, senior police officer Sunil Dhanawade said.

The two victims and their friends worked at a poultry farm in Kolhapur. The deceased were identified as 26-year-old Imran Garadi and 21-year-old Pratap Rathod.

The body of Pratap Rathod who hailed from Beed was recovered at around 1 pm today, police said.

In the video, we can see the two boys having bottles in their hands, climbing the fence around the edge of the valley and backtracking once or twice.

They sat on the railing for a while, backed off many times before finally climbing over it.

The two, who were drunk, tried pulling off some daring stunts while his friends cheered and encouraged them to continue. Both fell into the void. When the other tries to grab him, he too loses balance and both end up plunging down.
