Man dies after falling into vat of hot porridge in tragic accident

Witnessing a freak accident, bystanders rush to try and rescue Musaswamy to no avail. After what seemed like an eternity in the pot, the poor fellow was finally retrieved by a team of Samaritans and then taken to Rajaji Government Hospital.

Unfortunately, his savior came too late. Muthuswamy tragically died from severe burns received in the stew.

It is still unclear what caused the man's sudden instability, but his wife said he had epilepsy, which may have triggered the fall.

It took a whole team of samaritans to retrieve Muthuswamy.
