A 56-year old man in Croatia has been airlifted to safety just seconds before his boat was swallowed by the swollen River Sava in Zagreb.

The dramatic rescue came as authorities also continued to battle severe flooding in the north-west of the country, where the river burst its banks in some places following heavy rains in neighbouring Slovenia.
