An 11-year-old boy in China was miraculously saved after he was swept away into a fast-flowing drainage amid heavy rainfall.
The shocking CCTV footage shows the boy walking on one side of the road almost flooded with rain water when he suddenly slips and falls into an open storm drainage.
The water current in the drainage is so strong that the boy gets pulled along the open drainage channel but is unable to get out.
Fortunately, a black car is seen stopping when the boy falls into the drainage and two men hurriedly run after the boy in a bid to save him. The footage shows other bystanders rushing to help the two men and manage to pull out the boy from the open drainage hole. 
The incident occurred on 30 April, in Quzhou, Zhejiang Province, at around 3.00 pm, according to Shine Media reports quoted in NDTV.
However, the CCTV footage was shared by the Shanghaiist on Facebook on 18 May and collected over two lakh views in just 10 hours.
Several people praised the effort of those who saved the boy from drowning. One Facebook user wrote: 'Not all heroes wear capes!' While another wrote: 'God bless them all'.
