TIMELY EVACUATION BY EMERGENCY SERVICES SAVES KIDS|北市警消接力救53幼童 八里女騎士掉涵洞身亡

The torrential rains caused losses and casualties across Taiwan. At a kindergarten in Taipei, 53 children had to be evacuated as floodwater poured in. A female motorcyclist in New Taipei's Bali District was less lucky. She fell into a road underpass and was swept away by the water. She was found dead before she could be taken to the hospital. Surveillance footage shows floodwater rushing from this kindergarten in Taipei City. Police and fire department rescuers formed a line to save children from the scene. As heavy rains began in Taipei at 11 AM, the Boling Kindergarten started flooding. Kindergarten staff brought the 53 children to the nearby Jiantan Temple to wait for their parents. ==MR. LI Resident near the kindergarten== When I came out, the water was already roaring out. They told the teachers to take the children to higher ground immediately, which meant the Jiantan Temple. ==MS. CHANG Grandparent of kindergartener== My daughter-in-law called to say that there was a flood, and to come quick because the child has gotten wet, she said to bring clothes. Also affected by the rain were the residents of Lane 136, Huanshan Road. Because the drainage system of the nearby hiking trail was clogged by tree branches and leaves, muddy water flooded the area and waterlogged bicycles, scooters, and cars. ==MR. LIN Resident, Huanshan Road== The storm drain gridded covers were all blocked up by tree branches. The rescuer had a very hard job, he was removing the branches one by one. Due to the rain, Taipei City announced that all riverside evacuation gates would be closed by 2:30 PM. Unfortunately, many drivers were unable to move their cars from the riverside. ==CAR OWNER== I arrived at around 1, but the gate had already closed. So it was too late to get the car out. In New Taipei's Shimen District, a 60-year-old man was buried by a rockslide up to his neck. Rescuers were helping to free him. Fortunately, he was still conscious and in no danger of death. In Tamsui's Xinzhuangzi area, streets became rivers inundated with thigh-deep waters. Rescuers had to help three people cross the waters with ropes. A woman riding a scooter along Zhonghua Road in Bali District was less lucky. The fire department received a report that she had been swept away by flood waters after falling into a road underpass. She was found and rushed to a hospital, but died before she arrived.
