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

That morning, Franklin shared a video on Instagram showing the sludge as it flowed down the hill.

A shocking video shot by California firefighters captured the full wrath of the California mudslides, showing a auto being swept away by the raging flows of mud and debris that have plagued the state this week. They began packing their things and shoveled about 2 to 4 feet of mud that was caked up in front of the driveway, Franklin said. "I guess this is going to be it for me, right here", he thought.

"Realistically we suspect we are going to have the discovery of more people killed in this incident", Santa Barbara County Sheriff Bill Brown said at a Thursday news briefing, adding that he was hoping to find "miracle" survivors.

"When I got halfway down the hill, I just felt this burst of water hit the back of the vehicle", he said. "My girlfriend was screaming 'go go go'".

The video was shared by Burbank Firefighters on Instagram and it is scary AF.
