Today, on things we found on the internet: a woman braved floodwaters in Chongqing, China and broke into the second-storey window of their own home to rescue the prized Gunpla collection of her husband — who could not swim. A strong swimmer herself, she suffered cuts to her hands in the process, but all boxes were retrieved unharmed.

Chongqing is a Chinese municipality at the confluence of the Yangtze and Jialing rivers in southwestern China facing its biggest flood in 40 years. Local officials have issued a level-one emergency response, the highest alert in a four-tier scale, for the first time ever during the unprecedented flooding.
