Firefighters in China have earned accolades for rescuing a man from his car that was stuck in the middle of a surging, flooded river. The incident took place in the Zhejiang Province of east China, and a video of the dramatic rescue was shared by China Global TV Network (CGTN). The video shows a team of firefighters working together to rescue an unnamed man from heavy floods. The man, thankfully, managed to escape without any serious injuries.
After reaching the car stuck amongst rocks in the middle of a surging river with the help of a ladder, a firefighter rescues the man with the help of some rope. A crowd of spectators is seen watching and filming as the man is guided to safety, where a team of firefighters waits for him.

It is not known how the man ended up in the middle of a flooded river.
