After heavy rains lashed Pakistan’s coastal city of Karachi visuals of inundated roads, submerged roads and waves of water gushing over roads filled the Internet.
A viral video showed a man comfortably going with the flow of water over a road stunning the people around. He seemed to be reclining on a support as it went with the flow of rainwater. While its not clear from the video what kept the man afloat, his inflated salwar gives a hint though.

The floods left at least five people dead.
“At least five people were killed in different parts of the Karachi city,” said Mohamed Shafi, a spokesperson for the provincial disaster management authority.
Another 12 people have already lost their lives since the start of monsoon season this year, he added.
Pakistan’s Met office predicted 20% more rain and urban flooding this monsoon season.
