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.
