Nighttime Aerial Rescue Conducted in Flood-Hit Emilia-Romagna

At least nine people have been confirmed dead in severe flooding in Italy’s Emilia-Romagna region, local media reported on May 18.

Rivers across the region burst their banks, with thousands of people evacuated after half a year’s worth of rain fell in places.

This footage was published by the Guardia di Finanza, a militarized police force under the Italian Ministry of Economy and Finance. It shows a rescue in the Emilia-Romagna region. Credit: @GDF via Storyful
