Mar 12, 2018

More than a hundred people have pulled a lorry that had slid into a river in eastern China to safety.The clip, filmed in Fuyang City in Anhui Province on March 7, shows two groups of people pulling on two separate ropes tied to the lorry and pulling it up the hill. After a few moments, the lorry with a driver inside was pulled onto the embankment successfully.According to local media, the lorry had slid down the 20-metre-long slippery bank and got stuck in the river when it was reversing.As the lorry was too heavy and the road was too narrow for the fire engine to launch a rescue, firefighters called nearby citizens to rescue the lorry driver together by pulling the lorry up.
