A group of 14 hikers were rescued after heavy rains left them trapped in mountains in southern China.

The video filmed in the early morning in Shigong Mountain of Guangdong province shows firefighters searching overnight to find the 14 hikers.

After climbing four mountains and walking over rough and slippery mountain roads, all the hikers were finally found conscious but exhausted as they had not eaten for a long time.

Rescuers used safety ropes and took turns to support the trapped people and carry them on their backs.

The video was filmed on May 3.
