Baldwin Hills Dam Disaster and Flood - History Channel Documentary

On December 14, 1963 in the hills about Los Angeles,
the Baldwin Hills Reservoir suddenly cracked
and eventually failed,
flooding the neighborhood below.


  1. In a parallel universe, I drowned on that day as a 3 year old toddler along with my mother. My father went on to remarry.

  2. Intriguing comment. I remember watching the local news regarding this event as a child growing up in Gardena.
