China: Dyke Fall Boy Rescued From River

A boy has been rescued after falling down a river dyke into raging water below.

The 13-year-old tumbled into the fast-flowing water on Sunday afternoon in Jiangkou County in southwest China's Guizhou Province.

Ten firefighters and three fire engines were sent to the site, and several of the rescuers entered the water while secured to the river bank with ropes.
