Man miraculously escapes from raging Peruvian mudslide (VIDEO)
The video shows a man miraculously escaping the raging flood that swept him away while inside his truck.
Filmed in the Peruvian district of Chosica on Wednesday, the footage was recorded a short distance from Punta Hermosa, where a woman was recorded making a similar escape after she was swept away by the tide.
At least 62 people have died in Peru due to “rain-related events” since December, reports Reuters, many of which were in the last week as a result of the mudslides after a batch of torrential downpours.
A state of emergency has been declared in about half of Peru after 1,250 km's of highway was destroyed and more than 56,000 acres of crops were damaged.
