How to detect hanging rsync from bash-script ?

I am using rsync on an unreliable mobile WAN connection, which causes rsync
receiver to hang for long time, when connection is broken during transfere.
As the option "--timeout=" here does not hit for me, is there a recommended
"best" method to detect such scenario ?
