Video: Man Totally Loses It When He Finds His Car In A Flooded Parking Garage
This man, furious to find his car in a flooded parking garage, represents us all.
Gene Kang, a reporter with San Diego's CBS 8, was broadcasting live at Fashion Valley Mall in Mission Valley earlier this week. He's up to his knees in water as he explains that the parking area is "a notorious spot for flooding," and obviously, El Niño isn't helping.
Then he mentions that earlier, their cameras caught one man's reaction. "We really feel for him this morning," Kang says.
The water came from the nearby San Diego River, which swelled after heavy rains. The river rose from about 2 feet to 12 feet, and flooded the lower level of the garage behind a Macy's store, according to Fox 11. A handful of cars were submerged and stuck in the lot.
We've been there, Angry Parking Garage Man, and we wish you the best.
