Firefighters undertake rescue works in aftermath of earthquake in southern China

Chinese firefighters undertook rescue works in the aftermath of the 6.1-magnitude earthquake on June 1 in Ya ‘an, Sichuan province. Multiple clips show firefighters organising excavators to repair a road that has been damaged by landslides and help with damaged houses in a village. According to local media reports, the earthquake has left four people dead and 14 injured. The reports also suggest that the Lushan 6.1-magnitude earthquake was an aftershock of the 7.0-magnitude earthquake in 2013, which killed at least 196 people. The two earthquakes are just nine kilometers apart in the Shuangshi-Dachuan seismic zone. The video was provided by local media with permission.
