While journalists create a lot of headache for a lot of people a lot of time, sometimes they do good too - even if they do it accidently.

A man who fell off an embankment of Qiantang River was luckily saved by a journalist before being swept off by the river’s rising tide in Hangzhou, East China's Zhejiang province, on Monday.

When the journalist first spotted the man through his camera he thought the man was resting by the riverside. But when he saw him again an hour later, he realized that the man was injured. He immediately called the emergency number and the injured man was rushed to hospital with the help of police officers and firefighters.
