Footage has emerged of firefighters rescuing an elderly man trapped in wet sand in China.

According to local news, the man got stuck in the wet sand while trying to catch clams.

Nearby villagers called rescuers after they themselves failed to get him free, despite struggling for two hours.

The man was eventually rescued and was not seriously harmed.
