New Delhi, Sep 11 | Heavy rain since Saturday morning led to water-logging in various areas of the national capital with a bus carrying passengers from the Indira Gandhi International Airport getting stuck due to water-logging at South Delhi’s Palam flyover. However, all the bus passengers were rescued with the help of fire brigade personnel.

On Saturday morning, the bus coming from the airport was moving towards its destination through the Palam flyover but while passing through the underpass, the bus suddenly stalled due to a technical fault.

With the passengers being trapped in the middle of the water, fire brigade personnel immediately rushed to their help.

As many as 40 passengers inside the bus were evacuated safely.

A video of this incident has gone viral on the social media in which firefighters are seen evacuating the passengers from the bus in south Delhi and the passengers are seen leaving the underpass along with their luggage.

According to the fire department, they received a call at 11.31 a.m., following which two fire tenders reached the spot and all the passengers in the bus were safely taken out.

A police official said, “Nearly 30 to 40 people were sitting in the bus while it was coming out from the IGI airport, and suddenly stopped beneath the Palam flyover underpass. However, all passengers have been rescued safely now.”

“As always, Tesla is looking for hardcore AI engineers who care about solving problems that directly affect people’s lives in a major way,” Musk tweeted along with a link to apply for the job.

Interested candidates can apply by filling in fields like name, email, exceptional work done in software, hardware or AI, dropping their resume in the PDF format and hitting the Apply option.

As per the website, Tesla’s AI and Autopilot unit develops and deploys autonomy at scale in vehicles, robots and more.

“There is no need even to have a college degree at all, or even high school,” Musk said during an interview with the German automotive publication Auto Bild about his hiring preferences more broadly.

“If somebody graduated from a great university, that may be an indication that they will be capable of great things, but it’s not necessarily the case. If you look at, say, people like Bill Gates or Larry Ellison, Steve Jobs, these guys didna¿t graduate from college, but if you had a chance to hire them, of course that would be a good idea.”
