Over 20 rescuers save a pregnant woman in Typhoon Lekima
The storm has brought people closer together with rescuers sometimes going out of their way to help trapped individuals. In Wenzhou city of east China's Zhejiang Province, Gong Mengmeng, a pregnant woman, was saved after a group of more than 20 rescue workers took her to a local hospital, where she gave birth to a baby boy. She lives nearly 100 kilometers away from the local central hospital in Wenzhou city. And the mother-to-be chose to call the township police station. As the storm continued roaring, there were landslides everywhere, making it impossible to drive. Rescuers carried Gong Mengmeng on a stretcher for more than eight hours to get to the hospital. Normally it only takes an hour and a half.
