Rob Lowe Talks About Terrifying Vacation Disaster
Actor Rob Lowe is safely on the ground in NYC today, where he talked with “Extra’s” AJ Calloway about the scary moment he and his family knew they needed help as floodwaters engulfed their home while they were vacationing in France.
Lowe explained, “When I looked out the bedroom window and saw a BMW car floating by... I knew it was probably time to call the rescue people. We got 12 inches of rain in two hours in the South of France, a lot of people lost property. We were very lucky. We got rescued by amazing first responders.”
Rob continued, “It’s amazing how quickly it could all turn… my son and all his high school buddies were on a celebratory European trip with us, so they got memories they were not planning for and that they’re never going to forget, that’s for sure.”
He posted an Instagram of the floods!
Lowe was in NYC to team up with Genworth Financial on “Let’s Talk,” an initiative aimed at raising awareness about the costs of long-term health for aging family members. Lowe said, “Our parents were there for us. We need to figure out how we're going to be there for them.”
