Passengers join forces to push train stuck in snow in China

This is the heartwarming moment passengers joined together to push a train that was stuck in the snow in northeastern China.

Video filmed in Shenyang City, Liaoning province shows the group trying to move the train while heavy snow fell on November 8.

Staff of the Shenyang Hunnan Modern Transport Co., Ltd said many of their lines were blocked by heavy snowfall on the same day.

Large parts of northern China, including the capital Beijing, have this month been hit by freezing temperatures and the first snowfall of the year. It has sparked highway closures and flight and train cancellations.

China’s National Meteorological Agency raised an orange blizzard warning – the second-highest in China’s four-tiered alert system – as snowfall of up to 12 inches is forecasted in the following days.

The Beijing Meteorological Bureau said the winter weather struck around a month earlier than usual. Temperatures on Sunday fell to some of their lowest for the period in the past decade.
