Firefighters used lifeboats to evacuate people trapped in flooded buildings in southern China. The video, filmed in the county of Zhongfang in Hunan Province on July 3, shows firemen approaching flooded buildings on an inflatable boat to rescue residents trapped inside. Due to continuous heavy rainfalls, a nearby river's water level rose submerging streets and villages. Firefighters rescued 23 trapped locals and evacuated over 130.
