Firefighters save woman trapped in car that falls into lake

Firefighters rescued a woman trapped in a car that fell into a lake in northern China.

The clip, filmed in Handan City in Hebei Province on March 21, shows a fireman taking off his clothes and swimming to approach a car sinking slowly into an over two-metre-deep lake.

Then the fireman opens the back door of the car and drags the woman out of the driver’s seat.

The woman was rescued in four minutes and she was confirmed to be alright after being checked in hospital.

Firefighters and local residents also pulled the car onto the shore together successfully.
