BURBANK, Calif. -- The torrential rains that have pummeled Southern California this week have left trail of death and destruction few in the area have seen. One man whose terrifying trek down a Burbank hill made headlines is counting his blessings, CBS Los Angeles reports.
The image of Desionne Franklin's Prius being pushed by a flood of water down a street was a frightening thing to watch, let alone experience.
"It was one of those moments where I never felt before, where your whole life flash in front of you, like, this might be it," Franklin told CBS Los Angeles Thursday.
Early Tuesday morning, he watched debris flow down the street. Moments later, he knew he and his girlfriend had to evacuate the home where they had been staying.
