Floating restaurant swept away by swollen river
In China 11 people were thrown into a swollen river after a restaurant boat broke free of its moorings and was swept away.
Fire crews had problems trying to reach the boat to rescue the passengers in the Jialing River in the southwest of the country.
Just after a rescuer climbed aboard the runaway boat collided with a much larger vessel and completely capsized.
