Nathalia Bruno, 24, had been providing food for DoorDash at Passaic once her car got sucked into a subterranean viaduct and transported toward the Passaic River.
“I did not even understand what I had been going through,” said Bruno.
The water rose to close a ravine at Benson Park and there wasn’t any way to observe the street when her car had been trapped by the rising water.
Bruno got from the vehicle but strove to remain with it if they went under.
“I attempted to catch the vehicle, but I could not, I recall attempting to catch the wheel but that I could not,” she explained.
Witnesses say it happened so fast there wasn’t any way to prevent her from being sucked to the aqueduct.
Her car hauled into a subterranean support column at the cement tube, but she managed to steer clear of underground barriers.
Along the way she believed about her boyfriend, who she’d just texted using a photograph before heading under.
“That is the final time he is likely to see me, gonna speak to me, and considering my mother,” Bruno explained.
Bruno drifted right to the Passaic River, coming from a home on the Rutherford facet of this waterway. She managed to prevent any hurdles and was only carried by water. She admits she gave up.
The twisted, ruined, and mangled mess that has been her Toyota Prius was afterward lifted from a massive storm drain.
The severe damage to the automobile was caused as it slammed into a subterranean support beam from the cement tunnel.
The 24-year-old comes with an ear accident and some scratches. She watched where her car wound up trapped by means of a concrete support column at the drain she missed, and so is reflecting on what occurred.
“This thing keeps getting in my head – incredible I am living,” she explained.
