Polish firefighter convoy receives welcome in Sweden

More than 100 Polish firefighters speed through Sweden to help the country in its struggle against the largest wildfires the country has seen in modern times, and its worst drought in more than 70 years. Germany, Lithuania, Italy, France and Denmark have also supplied the country with planes, helicopters and firefighters. "We were headed home from the lake and noticed a lot of people on the bridges looking in the direction we were going," the filmer wrote. "I pulled up my phone and started looking through the news and saw that a large convoy of 44 polish firetrucks were headed up north."

Canada's indigenous peoples dance in sacred regalia at 28th annual powwow

Mohawk, Metis and Iroquois women dance in sacred regalia at the 28th Echoes of a Proud Nation powwow, in Kahnawake, in the Canadian province of Quebec. At the event, there is dancing, food and crafts, and everything has a symbolic meaning, from the colour of jewellery beads, to the way people dance.

Man heroically steps into raging waters to save little girl

The heart-stopping moment a man steps into a flooded street to pull out a three-year-old girl caught in the torrent. The girl had been carried away by the flood after breaking free from her father’s grip. The incident occurred in Jodhpur, India, on July 19. Local media reports said the man had gone to draw money from an ATM with his daughter. By the time he was finished, it started raining heavily, forcing him to wait under a shelter. It continued to pour and after just one hour drains overflowed, turning roads into gushing streams. The man, had been carrying his daughter on his shoulder, but she slipped, fell into the water and was swept away by the current. The man, was also swept away as he went after her in desperation. A bystander, who had also taken refuge from the rain at a shop, saw their plight and stepped in to pull out the girl. The father also managed to find his feet and joined his daughter. Local police officials said the man had put his daughter’s life to risk by taking her out in inclement weather. But they said they had no further information and had not filed any complaint over the incident.

Indians go fishing at home after monsoon floods draw school of catfish

Many fish-loving families in southwest India are waking up to their favourite dinner visiting them at home. A family in Kottayam, in the state of Kerala was pleasantly surprised when a school of catfish swam directly into their living quarters, did a neat U-turn on the veranda and left the same way it entered. Due to heavy monsoon rain this year, a local river, Moovattupuzha, has entered towns and villages, flooding homes and sweeping in the surprises. A few enterprising individuals are fishing directly from their windows or doorsteps to find the catch of the day. Those who venture to the river are rewarded with bigger fish, which can be plucked from the stream with their bare hands. A few men went to the banks of Kuttyadi river in Kozhikode district and returned carrying several huge fish – many still gasping for breath - on their shoulders. A resident of Kottaya, 43-year-old Manoj Nair, 43, said, "this happens whenever rivers swell due to rains. Last year, I saw many casting nets from their doorsteps to catch fish."
