It appears to show her taking selfies before a man nearby stumbles – apparently accidentally causing her to lose her balance and topple into the heavy currents.

The tragic scene unfolded near Kanakund, a picnic spot in the Sundargarh district of Odisha.

In the footage, a man can be seen walking behind the woman as she is taking a photograph.

The man slips and knocks into the woman who falls into the rapids.

Another woman screams as the victim is swept away by the power of the fast flowing water.

The water in the river was shallow but because of its speed the woman was unable to prevent herself from being washed away.

The incident happened so quickly

Moments later the woman had vanished beneath the angry foaming water
