Car under land - level 3

Yet another surveillance video of a car being swept away by muddy water in Yan'an City in China's Shaanxi Province. After weeks of heavy rain, it's becoming a common occurrence.

One incidence on July 13 was even more dramatic. Four people in a car were driving along a mountain pass when it was suddenly inundated by a nearly minute-long landslide. The whole thing was caught on camera.

Two men immediately escaped from the car and later another man was seen running away. With the help of the three survivors, the last man in the vehicle was also soon rescued.

Difficult words: surveillance (security camera), sweep away (carry away), occurrence (thing), incidence (occurrence) pass (road), inundate (flood).
