Helicopter Rescues Man from Pakistan Floods

A man stranded in a raging river in Pakistan was rescued by an army helicopter crew, August 28, 2022.

Footage shows how the crew lowers a rope to the man as he clings onto some rocks.

Eventually, the rescuers manage to lift him up into the air, away from the powerful torrent.

The incident was caught on camera in Lower Kohistan in the north-east of the country.

The area has been hit hard by deadly flooding, caused by heavy monsoon rains.

Pakistan needs financial help to deal with "overwhelming" floods, its foreign minister said Sunday, adding that he hoped financial institutions such as the International Monetary Fund would take the economic fallout into account.

Unusually heavy monsoon rains have caused devastating floods in both the north and south of the country, affecting more than 30 million people and killing more than 1,000.
