Cooking pot & strong swimming saves grandmother from floods


Desperate to save his grandmother from floodwaters swamping southern Pakistan, Ali Ahmed and three other relatives stuck her in a large metal cooking pot and pulled her to safety through neck-high water. The men swam for several hours through driving rain, unable to rest because the water was too deep, finally reaching a road and transporting her to a hospital where she was treated for acute diarrhea.
