Video shows couple’s mudslide survival
“I just got pushed down the side of a hill by a wall of water and mud,” Desionne Franklin said in an Instagram video after enduring the terrifying ride.
Franklin, 44, and his girlfriend evacuated a friend’s home where they were staying as waves of storm run-off began pouring down Burbank’s Country Club Drive, a steep foothill street near hiking trails and a golf course.
Mr Franklin, who is from Dallas, was told the neighbourhood was being evacuated. He and his girlfriend hurriedly left in their grey Prius.
