NEWS OF THE WEEK: Diplo and Chris Rock rescued from disastrous Burning Man festival by fan

Thunderstorms left thousands of festival attendees stranded in Nevada's Black Rock Desert on Saturday. Although the site of the event is usually dry and dusty due to its desert location, heavy rain has engulfed it in mud closing roads in and out. Revellers have been told to take shelter in place and conserve their food until flash flood warnings are lifted. Despite being stranded at the festival, Diplo was determined to make it to Washington D.C. for a gig, and he and Rock got some help from a fan with a vehicle capable of getting through the mud.
