Motorcyclists swept down road by rapid floodwater in southwest China

Rapid floodwater swept motorcyclists down a submerged road in southwest China. The video, filmed in the city of Bijie in Guizhou Province on July 18, shows two people on a motorcycle being washed away by rapid floodwater on a road. According to the filmer Mr Peng, the two people are a couple and they only suffered minor injuries. According to preliminary judgement, a drainage ditch for flood discharge on a construction site was filled up causing the floodwater to cover the road.
