A car these people were traveling in had been hit by a rock falling from the mountain on 26th October 2015, the day a 7.5 magnitude earthquake hit Pakistan and Afghanistan.

The passengers of the ill-fated car were traveling from Rawalpindi to Gilgit. A woman traveling in the car had miraculously survived the fatal accident, while four people, including the driver had gone missing. One body was found after a couple of days from the river.
