This video is a powerful reminder to always be aware of the tide when by the water, especially during a storm. An elderly couple learned this lesson the hard way when they were struck by powerful waves that almost swept them out to sea.
They were visiting Porsguen beach in Portsall, France and went to the shoreline to get a closer look at the stormy sea. Another man was also on the beach, walking the opposite direction when a giant wave struck the older man, knocking him down and pulling him towards the open sea.
As his wife and the other man tried to help they too were buffeted by waves.
