Flash floods sweep away car after driver tried to force their way through submerged road in China

Flash floods swept a 4x4 away after the driver tried to force their way through the submerged road in southern China.

The clip, captured in Ganzhou City in Jiangxi Province on June 7, shows a car getting stuck in the deep floodwater after it drove into the submerged street.

The driver and one passenger were reportedly trapped in the car.

Local villagers called the police and then used bamboo sticks to try and prevent the car from being washed away.

The two people in the car opened the driver's window to escape and villagers on the bank used a stick to pull the driver back to safety.

According to reports, the passenger drowned when rescuers found him after an hour.
