Rescue workers in Chengdu killed two birds with one stone by having their lunch in the muddy water as to continue blocking a breach that had appeared in the channel after heavy rain.
Due to some torrential downpours yesterday morning, a five-meter breach was found in the truck channel in of a Sichuan village. Water was flowing over farmlands, calling for local government officials and villagers to assist at the scene and reinforce the breach.
Seizing every second to block the breach, rescue workers didn’t even leave the water for a lunch break, and used their bodies to block off the water flow as they noshed.
According to witness accounts in Chengdu Business Daily, the workers packed away their meals within five minutes and got back to work.
