Mutai who was visiting the town of Iwaizumi to assess the deadly damage caused by Typhoon Lionrock, was lifted by a member of visiting team which subsequently sparked social media outrage in Japan.

The top government official has since apologized for his “inappropriate” behaviour, stating that he “deeply regretted” not bringing along his rubber boots to the location.
