SHOCKING VIDEO: Ida floodwaters collapse wall of NJ home, trap mother and son
NEW JERSEY - The full force of the historic flooding caused by the remnants of Tropical Storm Ida can be seen in a shocking video from Cranford, New Jersey, when a home's wall suddenly buckles under the force of the floodwaters, trapping a teenager and his mother inside the basement of their home.
The terrifying scene and the pair's calls for help were all captured on a family security camera.
Other family members heard toe commotion and were able to pull the pair to safety.

Although some were able to narrowly escape the severe flooding caused by Ida and survive to tell the story, others were not. Governor Murphy announced Friday that the death toll from the storm has risen to 25.
"Overwhelmingly, folks lost, if not entirely, to flooding. No fatalities, thank God, related to the tornadoes that touched down in South Jersey," Murphy said. "And we have at least 6 persons missing right now in the state."
Murphy said that recovering and rebuilding will require economic support, which is why he is handing out $10M in state grants to small businesses impacted by the storm and is calling on the federal government to help homeowners.
