Chinese firefighters and local villagers worked together to rescue a couple who got caught in a flash flood in Rizhao, Shandong Province, China. In incredible footage obtained by CGTN, the couple tried to escape the flood by crossing a bridge but ended up stuck on it.
A firefighter swam against raging waters to the couple and attached a zip line to the van.
With the zip line attached, the firefighters sent out two life jackets to the victims.
Once the couple put on the life jackets they hooked themselves to the line. The local villagers and the firefighters pulled the couple to safety.
The couple was okay but their minivan was destroyed. For the full video check below.
