China flash flood rescue moments before truck swept away

Firefighters and bystanders have helped rescue a group of workmen caught in a flash flood in China's Sichuan province.

The five men were on their way to work when water levels suddenly rose and left them stranded in the middle of a gushing torrent.

Their rescue came moments before their vehicles were swept away by the water.

Tom Santorelli reports.
