Emmerdale 'survival week' continued in epic style last night as David and Victoria fought for their lives in terrifying rapids after falling from a broken rope bridge. 

There was huge drama in Emmerdale as viewers watched the aftermath of the rope bridge collapse, which happened in Monday night's episode of the soap

First Manpreet and Charles were seen plunging into the icy water below before David and Victoria quickly followed. 

But while Charles and Manpreet were lucky enough to make it out of the water and onto dry land in almost one piece, the same can't be said for David and Victoria, who struggled to keep their heads above water.

At one point it seemed that David might have been able to rescue Victoria when he caught up with her and they both tried to cling onto a rock. 

However, the current was too strong and soon Victoria was torn from David's grip and was washed away towards the top of a huge waterfall.
