WATCH: Man risks his life saving car on steep incline as flash floods hit in Callosa de Segura during Costa Blanca storms

A MAN has risked his life saving a car as flash floods hit a steep street in Collsa de Segura during Costa Blanca storms.

The man wades through gushing water as he gets into his car and drives down through the deluge.

The car even jolts and threatens to be swept away as the man, holding a pink umbrella, opens the door and starts the engine.

Shocked viewers gasp as they record a video of the reckless act.
