An amateur cameraman captured five members of a family being swept away by flood waters at the weekend in a deadly accident at a waterfall in central India, AFP reports.

Local police officer P.S. Maravi said the holiday-makers were bathing below the 300-foot (90-metre) Patalpani waterfall in Madhya Pradesh state on Sunday when they were caught by a torrent of water.

After hanging on to each other and clinging to support, they were swept away. Three were found dead, while two survived, the Press Trust of India news agency quoted officer Maravi as saying.

Almost 200,000 people have been effected by flooding in the northeastern state of Assam and monsoon rains have created havoc in several other states including in Bihar, Madhya Pradesh, Maharashtara and Uttar Pradesh.
