On July 23, the Anhui fire rescue team evacuated those trapped at the Zhongyuan Institute of Science and Technology in Zhengzhou City, Henan Province. A boy wading through floodwaters embraced a firefighter and wept in his arms. The boy is only 17 years old and hails from Gansu Province. Passing by Zhengzhou, the boy was stranded by heavy rains. He took shelter from the rain at the school. The rescue team comforted him, and supplied him with dry shoes, water and food. It was still raining when he was leaving. The boy insisted on giving the umbrella to the firefighters. After the firefighters repeatedly rejected, he forwarded the umbrella to a community staff. Firefighters finally escorted him to the highway intersection. He is now on his way home.
