Stuck in the mud: Old man rescued from riverbed

Recently, footage of police digging out an elderly man from thick mud has gone viral on China’s social media, gaining a lot of praise. After receiving an emergency call saying an old man was stuck in a muddy riverbed in Xuancheng, Anhui Province on June 11, several local policemen arrived at the scene to find the man up to his head in the cement-like mud. With the old man sinking into the mud, the police had to clear the mud away from him and carry him up the bank step-by-step. After nearly one hour, the man was successfully pulled on to solid ground, and sent to hospital for treatment. The old man reportedly fell into the mud after taking a walk by the river.
