Auntie Shen’s Amazing Adventure in the Yangtze River

A 57-year-old woman in Hubei was completely unharmed after drifting 46 miles overnight in the Yangtze River without a life jacket.

A blogger shared the news on Weibo, and it got forwarded over 20,000 times.

Auntie Shen from Yellowstone got drunk, and decided to go for a swim, but passed out in the water. When she woke up 10 hours later, she didn’t know where she was.

She called out for help, and was rescued by a couple living next to the river. It turned out she had safely passed through several sections of rough water. Bravo, Auntie Shen!
