This person happened to step out of the worst possible spot at the best possible time.
In the video, a person circled in red can be seen standing in a spot with an umbrella as rain is falling.
About 15 seconds after the person walked away, the spot they were standing in gets completely covered by mud and rocks as a landslide rushes into the area.
The civil protection of the Campania region said the individual managed to survive the incident, and that it was an important reminder during bad weather to “pay attention” to alerts issued by authorities.
The near-tragedy in Cetara, located along Italy’s famed Amalfi Coast, happened as multiple landslides were reported in the region amid heavy rains, closing several roads, ANSA reported at the time.
In the nearby town of Vietri sul Mare, the mayor ordered school buildings to be used to accommodate those who were impacted by the landslide.
After another landside in Cetara, also on Dec. 21, several hundred guests were trapped at a wedding reception taking place at a hotel, according to ANSA.
