The recent cold spell has gifted Chinese news with a treasure trove of rescue stories, whether its heroic passersby rescuing children from rivers or helpful netizens saving frozen pet turtles, this time our subject in need of rescue is this poor dude who managed to get his SUV trapped in a frozen lake behind Beijing’s Summer Palace.
But all was not lost! The man promptly called for rescue and an excavator soon turned up.
Only for it to get stuck too.
You tried guy, you really did.
But third time’s the charm, as another excavator was called and turned up to rescue both vehicles, successfully.
Thus a happy ending was secured for everyone involved, as well as a majestic picture of the final excavator gleaming in the sun.
