'Barely Made It Out' Says Couple Who Raced Car Out Of Mudslide

Firefighters from Burbank California are credited with taking this awesome video showing a Prius being swept along in a mudslide.

At last, the Prius made it to the bottom of the hill. Prior to his wild ride, Franklin, a native of Dallas, had taken to his Instagram account earlier that morning to post a video of the rushing water. "I'm like, I'm going but I have no control of the brakes or the steering or anything at that point for a part of the way down".

"My girlfriend was screaming at the top of her lungs: 'Go, go, go! We've got to get out of here!'" Franklin said.

A shocking video shot by California firefighters captured the full wrath of the California mudslides, showing a vehicle being swept away by the raging flows of mud and debris that have plagued the state this week. Rescue officials said numerous missing may simply have been unreachable by family and friends who reported they could not find them.

"Franklin said he told everyone, "'We've got to go now.' I was a little frantic". "We have to leave right now'".

Meanwhile, GKN said its Board will communicate further details on the optimal method of separation in due course. Today (12 January) GKN revealed that it had received an unsolicited offer from Melrose to acquire the company.

"What you can't see in that video is the panic inside", says Franklin who uses his vehicle to work as a rideshare driver at night.

Then, a wave of water crashed into the back of the vehicle.

"I just got pushed down the side of a hill by a wall of water and mud", he can be heard narrating.

The entire street of Country Club Drive east of Via Montana, an area that boasts several million-dollar homes, was under mandatory evacuation as the rain poured down, and several other roads throughout the area were under voluntary evacuation or closed to through traffic.

"Our home has been severely damaged, but we are safe, and so thankful for that and for the first responders who are working tirelessly to save people", Bridges wrote on Twitter.
