Five rescued from floods in China

EDIT CONTAINS 4:3 MATERIAL Flash floods in southwestern China stranded five men in the centre of a gushing torrent on Thursday (May 9), state media reported. The workers had been trying to cross a channel near the city of Leshan, Sichuan province, in trucks when water rose rapidly, official broadcaster CCTV reported. The men climbed onto the roof of a mechanical digger while people on the bank tried to find a way to rescue them. After several attempts to throw over a rope from the shore, one man used a fishing rod and cast over the rope which the men then attached to the arm of the digger. A fire-fighter then pulled himself along the line to reach them, and each of the men was pulled over to safety.
