X user Sudhakar Udumula shared the video while writing: “Residents of Reddypuram Kovelakunta in Hanumakonda were taken aback today after discovering what they initially believed to be a dead body floating in the local pond. The man, later identified as a quarry worker from Kavali in Nellore District, was found lying motionless in the water from 7 am to 12 pm.”

Take a look at the video below:

The video has received over 4 million views on X. According to reports, the man was a quarry worker who was floating in the pond to cool off.

When locals assumed it was a corpse and informed the Kakatiya University police, cops reached the spot to drag him out. Much to their shock, however, the man woke up and clambered out of the pond himself.

Upon being questioned, he reportedly said that he had been working for 10 days straight at a granite quarry. Exhausted after his 12 hour shift, the man decided to take a dip in the pond but soon fell asleep.

His presence, however, created panic among residents of the area who noticed that he had been floating motionless for over five hours.
