 A mother and her daughter were swept away by the waters of Dzuchru river, Phesama under Kohima jurisdiction on Sunday. 

A press note by Nagaland State Disaster Management Authority (NSDMA) informed that the incident took place at around 2:30 p.m. when the women had gone to collect pig fodder and slipped into the river. The mother was rescued by State Disaster Response Force (SDRF) while the daughter was still missing. The mother was admitted to Bethel Hospital with multiple injuries. 
NSDMA said personnel of SDRF and DDMA Kohima swung into action with the help of Phesama local community. However, inclement weather hampered the rescue operation and will resume early Monday to find the missing daughter, NSDMA said.
