It's completely understandable that people want to save their belongings during a natural disaster, but sometimes, it's just better to let go when your life is in danger.
A woman, reportedly in the port city of Barranquilla in northern Colombia, was filmed trying to save her Mazda 626 during a severe flood. Instead of getting out of harm's way, she refused to abandon her car.
Several local men tried to talk her into coming out of the vehicle while at the same time holding on to the car so it wouldn't be taken away from the floods. The car was eventually pushed into the stream but luckily for her, with the help of a few good Samaritans, it stopped on the side of the road.
However, because of her stubbornness, the running waters swept away three men who were trying to help her. From the video footage , it appears that two of the men were saved but we do not know what happened to the third one.
