Nowhere to go, and I just opened the door. Reporter: Within seconds, the vehicle, patio tables and debris flying where the family had just been. Very fast. Like -- Reporter: The restaurant employees watched in horror. When I went to that door, I was, like, expecting the worst, you know? And it's a blessing to see her right next to me. Reporter: Perez grateful for the rain pouring down that day, to avoid getting wet. She urged her 3 and 5-year-olds to cover their heads and move quickly as they left the restaurant.
