Wedding rescue amid China floods

24 July 2012 Last updated at 16:33 BST

Two cars from a wedding procession plunged into a river in east China's Shandong Province on Monday after a bridge collapsed following heavy rains.

Two people were able to crawl out of one of the cars and swim to safety, but the driver of the other car was stuck and had to be rescued through the sun-roof as the river raged around him.

He escaped without life-threatening injuries, as Xiaoyun Yao reports.
