(Newser) – Mudslides in Peru have killed more than 60 people this month, per CNN, but an amazing video shows how one woman narrowly avoided joining that list. As an astonished onlooker shouts, "A person!" the woman identified as 32-year-old Evangelina Chamorro Diaz emerges from the fast-moving muck outside Lima, reports the Guardian. “She is a little confused, but she is very well and will recover because she is a warrior,” says the nation's health minister after visiting her. Diaz saved herself by grabbing a tree branch amid the deluge, according to local media reports. (This video shows an abducted woman's dramatic escape from the trunk of a car.)
