Rumble This is the moment three Chinese residents escape a locked-down town in a tiny wooden boat after paying a ferryman to help them buy "snacks" across a river.

Footage from the county of Lujiang, which is in Hefei, capital of Anhui Province in East China, shows the trio packed into the small vessel as boatman Mr Wang paddles across the Baishishan River.

According to reports, the three residents are from the town of Tongda, which has been put on lockdown as part of emergency measures to prevent the spread of the deadly coronavirus - now officially COVID-19.
