Social media posts circulating in Pakistan in January 2022 have shared a video showing an excavator truck falling into a snow-filled ravine after attempting to pull out an SUV. Some posts suggest the footage was filmed during a recent deadly blizzard in Pakistan's mountain resort town of Murree. This is misleading: the video has circulated online since at least 2020.
