Rob Lowe and his family found their French home submerged by water on Wednesday after a flood almost over took them.
The 50-year-old actor and his son John Owen posted about the incident on their respective Instagram and Twitter accounts
"Thank you to the fireman that saved us from this nightmare," wrote Rob's son 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," John Owen 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
