More than a dozen people form a human chain to rescue a mother and her two children trapped in a frozen river in northern China.

In the video, the group of people hold hands with each other to form the human chain and pull a woman and her three-year-old daughter out of the icy river in Tangshan City in Hebei Province on January 7.

The other trapped child, a 10-year-old boy, had already been rescued.

According to local reports, the woman and two children suddenly fell into the frozen river when they were playing on it.
