Is this the world's most crowded swimming pool?

Posted on 6:39 PM by Sameer Shah

There was barely enough room to tread water as thousands of swimmers crowded into a pool in an attempt to escape China's scorching heatwave.

But the fact there was no elbow room was not going to stop the fun in the world's most populous nation.

Families desperate to escape the heat grabbed their rubber rings to jostle for space at a local pool in Nanjing, the capital of the Jiangsu Province.

A heatwave has blasted many parts of China with temperatures reaching a sweltering 40 degrees.

China residents also resorted to jumping into the polluted Yangtze river to cool off.

The country is now bracing for extreme weather, with strong gales and soaring temperatures in recent weeks serving as harbingers of disasters to come.

Rainstorms have already wreaked havoc on southern parts of China leaving dozens people dead or missing and forcing many more to evacuate their homes.
