Heavy rains caused flash flooding so dangerous that it swept a man down a steep hill in Kentucky, and it was all caught on tape.Michael Nease lost his car in a wave of water. So, he got out and tried to walk out of the flood on his own. That's when he lost his footing.

"The current was too strong and just kind of took him down. It actually swept him off his feet and carried him all the way down to the bottom of the hill. He was beat up pretty bad," said an onlooker.

Nease was pretty shaken up, but amazingly he wasn't seriously hurt.
