Australian floods: Funeral of boy 'hero' Jordan Rice

Mourners gathered at a cemetery for the funeral of teenager Jordan Rice and his mother Donna, who died in floods that have devastated parts of Australia.

Australians dubbed the 13-year-old a national hero after he insisted rescuers save his younger brother Blake first, when the family's car became swamped by a raging torrent of water.

Blake was plucked to safety, while Jordan and his mother were swept to their deaths.

Jordan's father John Tyson spoke at the ceremony.
