in the “window period” before the flood peak crossing. At 3:35 p.m. on the 16th, the village road and river course of Bailu island had been completely submerged, and the turbid and turbulent river water washed the houses and trees in the water. In the heavy rain, the rescue team boarded the rubber boats and stormboats, and set out to investigate the disaster situation and transfer the masses.

and

at about 7:30 p.m., the sky gradually became dark. In addition, the flood surged rapidly and was no longer suitable for rescue. “The emergency rescue site headquarters discussed and decided to replenish rescue forces to go to the island again. Together with the public security police and town and village cadres stationed on the island, they should inform and organize the villagers to preliminarily transfer to the flood control station and houses on the island for temporary refuge, waiting for a better rescue opportunity.” City Emergency Management Bureau related person in charge said.

and

received flood peak warning information at 10:30 p.m. At 14:45 on the 17th, Jintang county is expected to experience the second largest flood peak in history. Sanhuangmiao hydrological station on the main stream of Tuojiang River will have a peak water level of 446.55 meters and a peak discharge of 8100 cubic meters per second. Immediately, the emergency rescue scene headquarters decided to rush to the “window period” before the flood peak transit to transfer the trapped people.

fought hard for 9 hours. All 79 trapped people were rescued. At 5:00 am on the 17th, the flood level near panlongsi bridge slightly decreased. The emergency management department gathered rescue forces such as fire rescue, flood prevention and rescue, river regulation and other rescue forces, seven rubber boats and assault boats. With the concerted efforts of all, the emergency management department carried out the preparation before departure in an orderly manner.

and

at 7:00 a.m., the sky is bright. “After yesterday’s survey, the current speed is very fast, and there are many floating objects on the water surface, which is a great test for the operation of rubber boats and shock boats.” Rescue workers of Chengdu fire rescue detachment said, “there are some water areas, the distance between the wire and the water surface is no more than 20 or 30 cm, people can only lie down on the boat, and the rescue work is more difficult.” After wading through the waist deep flood and carrying rescue equipment, life jackets and other items, more than 20 rescue workers drove to the position of the trapped people, and a “isolated island” rescue operation was launched immediately! At 8:10 am,

arrived at the shore smoothly carrying the first batch of 11 trapped people. Gan Tianqiong, a villager, repeatedly said thanks excitedly. Gan Tianqiong said, “at more than 6 o’clock in the morning, after receiving the call to transfer, I quickly packed up my luggage. I didn’t expect that soon after, I heard the rescue workers calling and came to pick us up.” “I didn’t go to bed at three or four o’clock in the morning, waiting for help.” Liang Xuejie, a villager, was also one of the trapped people. After his family moved ahead of time, he wanted to stay and take care of his family, but he was besieged by floods. “After the stormboat came, I couldn’t get down on the roof, and finally I stepped on the shoulder of the rescue workers and was followed by him.”

“the whole rescue work is still relatively difficult. From here to the central island, the transfer route we surveyed yesterday is affected by floating objects on the water. Today, it is no longer in line with the sailing conditions. We must bypass a factory area inside and directly enter an area with a fast flow rate to reach the island.” According to rescue workers in Chengdu police garrison area, the rescue team, in addition to the transfer of personnel at the concentration point, is more of a door-to-door scattered transfer of other trapped people. The passageway between villagers’ houses is narrow, and rubber boats and charge boats need to be highly vigilant against the submerged wall “reef” in the process of driving. In some places, only wooden ladders and ropes can be used to transfer houses; in some places, life buoys and life jackets can only be carried to swim over, and then the villagers can be connected to the boat. “Among the transfer personnel, there are children who are not able to walk independently, and there are also elderly people in their 80s.” The rescue workers of Chengdu police station area who participated in the rescue told reporters that these old people and children were carried out by rescue workers one by one, and then transferred to the ship.

She lives with more than 10 other victims of the disaster. “It’s all new bedding, but it’s all new. She chats with her neighbors at night, and soon falls asleep.” “KDSPE “”

“in the morning porridge and eggs, lunch and dinner are hot dishes Liu guangqiong told reporters that their lunch today is fried meat with onion, fried pork with potatoes and fried lotus white.
