Thanks for sharing the new post Ron. I haven't additional info to add. Might this have been someone in a jeep-like vehicle trying to get another vehicle unstruck? The map of Tow Force participants doesn't show any tow companies in Pakistan, only India. Until there's proof to the contrary that a tow truck operator, I've chosen to record this as a civilian incident. It's too bad someone lost their life especially in a third-world county where being creative oftentimes results in injury or death.  This fatality comes on the heels of another TowForce post (last week) with two videos of recovery attempts resulting in, in your face, kill you dead, off-road injuries and a fatality. I know this is your party and all, yet I'm not so sure on this one.     R.
