In this amazing dash-cam video shot in Taiwan, a driver narrowly escapes a massive landslide that occurred during tropical storm Kong-Rey, which dumped more than 19 inches of rain on the island last week.

What is even more amazing is the gigantic boulder that follows, appearing to come within just a few feet of crushing the car. It looks like a scene from "Indiana Jones and the Raiders of the Lost Ark."

All kidding aside, three people died as a result of the heavy rains that battered Taiwan'sheavily populated west coast and caused widespread flooding, according to The Weather Channel.

Officials said a total of 3,600 residents were evacuated. Floodwater was reported to have reached the second story level of buildings in some places on the island.
