There was a flash flood in Longcaogou, Longmenshan Town, Pengzhou, Sichuan the afternoon before yesterday. Many people ignored the warnings of the authorities, picnicking and camping in the river. In the flood, a father protected his son (pictured above), sitting on a big rock waiting for rescue, whose life and death were uncertain. Authorities dispatched rescuers to try to rescue them, but 7 people were still killed and 8 others were injured.
It is reported that the area is famous for its scenery and is regarded as a "hidden and secret scene", and many people come here because of it. Even though the area has been set up with warning signs and fenced with barbed wire, the people ignore the dangers of the place, and some people cut the barbed wire to enter river course. Some mainland netizens said that about an hour before the flood, some government officials loudly warned tourists to evacuate, but unfortunately they were ignored, resulting in a tragedy.
