Firefighters rescued a buffalo trapped in a 1-metre-wide pipe shaft in eastern China. The heroic video, filmed in the city of Hefei in Anhui Province on April 10, shows safety ropes being attached to the trapped buffalo and firefighters using tools to remove the mud around it as well as tear down a concrete cover on its body.
