The article discusses about the experience of Frank Garcia, a hydrologist who went to Douglas, Arizona to study the results of a flash flood and determine its point of origin. Frank was one of those who saw a woman's body washed out of the tunnel during 1:30 in the morning of the flood. The flood also caused death to eight travelers. However, there were also survivors who were found by the Border Patrol. Underground, as he gathered his numbers and notes about his research on the flood, he looked for a light a few blocks away, but he saw darkness. He experienced shortness in breathing. He was afraid and scrambled, until he reached the ladder and finally saw the daylight. He survived from the underworld.
