An incredible act of bravery and ingenuity has saved a trapped man from rapidly rising flood waters with only moments to spare.

The scene was a garage in Yangshuo County in the south of China, where in an attempt to save a number of cars from water damage, the man found himself in serious danger.

Fast-moving water began to fill the small garage, trapping the man and giving him only minutes to find a way out before he was completely submerged. Fortunately, some colleagues were on hand to help.


Using a hastily crafted raft, the group of rescuers moved closer to the man and attempted to use a fire hose to fish him out of the garage — but the hose was a couple of feet too short.

By now, the water had reached neck-level and knowing the man surely had only minutes to find an escape, the rescuers came up with a last-ditch and desperate plan.

The fire hose was wrapped around the waist of a brave colleague, who was then lowered precariously into the rushing water. The trapped man was able to grab hold of the hose and was pulled to safety just as the water began to reach the ceiling of the garage.

"I didn't think how dangerous it is to rescue him," Huang Shuyu, the man's rescuer, said.

"I felt not so afraid, but I really wanted to rescue the colleague from floodwater with others. You see, the flood water was soaring.

"Only two or three minutes after we saved him, the flood water had overwhelmed the parking lot. So our rescue was launched right in time."

Workplace camaraderie at this particular garage has never been stronger.
