  • The distraught father tried to drown his daughter in a river
  • The man waded into the river with his two daughters after a family conflict
  • But rescuers got the pair to safety on a boat in China

This is when emergency workers pull a man and his daughter on a boat after the man tried to commit suicide and his daughter drowned in a river after a family row.

The harrowing scene unfolded yesterday in Qingjiang township of Yueqing, Zhejiang province.

The man, known only as Mr. Wang, began to walk a daughter in a river to commit suicide after a family conflict on Saturday.

However, both police and aid workers succeeded in saving and no one was injured by local media during the incident.

Two boats with four men can be seen around the distraught father and his child as they grab him by the neck to drag him out of the river and into the boat.

But as the rescue unfolds, Mr. Wang seems to be fighting back as the men try to pull him into the boat and he can be seen grimly while the men struggle to lift his body weight.

As they perform their daring rescue, the boat begins to dive into the water by pulling Mr. Wang's weight on board.

One of the rescuers can be seen on the left in a long jacket and holds a belt tightly as he sees the rescue unfold from his wooden green and red boat.

The little girl, whose name and age are unknown, is being held tightly by a man in a purple coat as she is rescued from the river.

Her rescuer grabs an oar, perhaps to stabilize when he looks at the little girl to check if everything is okay.

The men all seem to wear their daily clothes, but two rescuers have succeeded in putting on inflatable orange life jackets for the rescue.

A man looks like his gray shirt has been soaked with water while he helps with the rescue.

It is not known why Mr. Wang took such drastic measures to end his life next to his daughter – apart from reports about the family reason.

But he and his daughter are considered safe according to local media reports.
