Panaji: In mid-sea operations, Coast Guard saves armyman

An Indian Army officer on a holiday had a narrow escape when he slipped off a cliff at Cabo de Rama, around 62km from here, and nearly drowned when he fell into the choppy sea on Thursday. Lifeguards of Drishti Lifesaving, the government appointed agency to manage the state’s beach, immediately alerted the Indian Coast Guard who deployed a helicopter to rescue the officer.
