At least four people have been killed in a storm in southwest Germany.
The state of Baden-Württemberg is in shock after Sunday night’s deluge.
Among the dead are a volunteer firefighter and the person he was trying to rescue in the town of Schwäbisch Gmünd near Stuttgart.
Separately, a man died in an underground car park flooded with rainwater in the town of Weißbach.
And also in Baden-Württemberg, a 13-year-old girl was killed after being hit by a train as she sheltered from the downpour under a railway bridge.
Local authorities say several people were injured in the storm. Some motorists had to be rescued after their cars were completely submerged.
It follows lightning strikes in southwest Germany and in France on Saturday that left nine people seriously hurt.
