Footage: firefighters evacuate people stranded by flood

Firefighters evacuated 87 people from two residential buildings in a low-lying area marooned by flood in Yongzhou city, China’s Hunan Province.  A rainstorm drenched Daoxian county on Thursday while rainwater swelled in some of the residential areas. Firefighters rushed to the scene with rescue vehicles only to find that the roads and cars parked in the area were almost submerged in the water. However, they promptly evacuated the elderly and children first using rubber boats, after which all of the 87 people were brought to safety nearly two hours later. Have a look at the rescue operation.
