Mitchell shared the photo which shows the inside of the truck and the windows showing the vehicle fully submerged in water, along with the caption, “And all I wanted was to go home”.
The victim’s body had later been found more than a mile downstream from the place where his overturned truck had been discovered.
Mitchell was also one of four people who had reportedly been killed in the floods which struck the city on Thursday, May 26, 2016.
Family members of Mitchell, who is revealed to have been a National Guardsman, disclosed that he had called to tell them that he was trapped in the flood just before he shared the haunting post on Facebook.
Ro Mitchell revealed to local station, KHOU:
“He just said he was all right and he made it out of the truck.”
An eye-witness, Lashandoe Smith, also reveals that Mitchell had been able to climb out onto the roof of his truck before it toppled into raging floods.

“He got out of his truck, he got in the bed of his truck, he got back out, on top of his truck, and then all of the sudden he got back in his truck.
“And like maybe 10, 15 minutes after he was in his truck, it just flipped and he topsided into the water.”
May his soul rest in peace.
