A dad, 21 year old Darren Mitchell who was trapped in his submerged truck in Texas during torrential floods sent a heart-breaking last Facebook post showing his hopeless final moments. Mitchell, a National Guardsman called his family to tell them that he was trapped in the flood.
Then he posted a photo from inside his truck submerged in water with the caption “And all I wanted was to go home” and posted it on Facebook.
A family member, Ro Mitchell said:
“He just said he was all right and he made it out of the truck.”
However, an eye-witness, Lashandoe Smith said Mitchell said:
“He got out of his truck, he got in the bed of his truck, he got back out, on top of his truck, and then all of the sudden he got back in his truck. “And like maybe 10, 15 minutes after he was in his truck, it just flipped and he topsided into the water”.
His body was later found more than a mile away from where his overturned truck was discovered.
Darren was one of four people killed in floods which struck the region on Thursday.
May their souls rest in Peace…Amen!
