Firefighters broke the cover of a drain to get an ID card back for a student, who was going to take the university entrance exam in southern China.

The video, filmed in Yibin City in Sichuan Province today (June 7), shows a fireman using a hammer to smash the drain cover and another fireman using a shovel to remove it.
