The news footage of deadly floods that have ravaged Peru is everywhere but it was this video that highlighted the severe circumstances the people of Peru must overcome to survive. The video of 32-year-old Evangelia Diaz swept by a ravaging mudslide is unbelievable and more unbelievable is the good fortune of having neighbors nearby to help her as she stumbles through debris fields.
Over 60,000 Peruvians have lost their homes and nearly 70 people have lost their lives due to the severe weather. Diaz, who lives outside of Lima in Punta Hermosa survived as did her livestock pulled to safety by rescuers.
