"Thank you to the fireman that saved us from this nightmare," wrote John Owen Lowe, who called the event the "scariest hour or so of [his] life."

"Happy for us all to be safe, thoughts to others," he continued.

The family was vacationing in the South of France, which is reported to have reached more than three months-worth of rainfall in a matter of hours on Wednesday morning, according to the Toronto Sun.
