Rescuers winch toddler to safety amid food deluge

(ROUGH CUT ONLY - NO REPORTER NARRATION) Two women and a young child were airlifted to safety after their truck was stuck in quickly rising flood waters in the Australian town of Bioela on Saturday (January 26). The rescue was filmed by the rescuer who had a camera attached to his helmet and the video was aired on local television Network Seven on Sunday (January 27). The two women put the infant in a waterproof bag which was then lifted up to the safety of the helicopter. At least one person has been been reported dead and several others injured in the severe weather conditions which have caused torrential rain, tornados and flooding, local media said. Authorities say around 58,000 houses are without electricity, hundreds of homes are under water and several towns isolated. The bad weather is on its way south and is due to hit New South Wales' capital Sydney on Monday (January 28).
