Eels swim through flooded Vietnam hospital

Heavy rain and flooding has left hospital staff chasing eels in the corridors of a hospital in Vietnam.

The rain on Monday night measured up to 204.3mm in several areas, officials said.

It caused traffic jams and flights to be delayed.

This video, which was shared with BBC Vietnamese, has gone viral on Vietnamese social media.

Fish and eels often make their way into people's homes during flooding, and catching them is a popular past time with many, the BBC Vietnamese's Pham Lan Phuong says.
