“He tied me to the tree, but he was washed away by the floods,” cried a 72-year-old woman, who was rescued from fast-moving floodwater by firefighters on Wednesday in Qujialing, Hubei Province.
The old woman was spotted grasping the tree, and as rescue workers approached it emerged that she was tied to it with cloth and rope. She was pulled to safety, but her husband had earlier been washed away after making sure his wife was securely tethered to the tree.
The heartbreaking love story touched the hearts of thousands of Chinese netizens.
“I want to cry, I believe in love again,” said Chinese video site user @gezi251104748.
