A sad incident

The woman was able to get her son out of his car seat, but failed to get him to safety. The current being too strong, the child was carried away by the waters.

The child’s mother recounts this nightmare

“Kayl said to me ‘mum, it’s going to be fine’. I tried to hold his hand, but the current was pushing him away from me. He was swept away and I saw his hand emerge from the water “Lindsey tells the American channel ABC. The child has not yet been found, but the search is continuing. As the rain continues to pour down on San Diego, the chances of finding him alive are slim.
