A retired couple was swept away by a wave that was caused by a storm at a beach in Ploudalmézeau, France on the evening of Monday February 8th 2016. A man filming his wife caught the action on camera as his wife walked partially down the beach and back again before the giant wave came crashing up the beach. The retired couple walking down just as the man's wife was walking up got caught in the wave. The man fell down as the wave crashed at their feet and was swept away around a hundred feet down the beach. The wife chasing her husband was eventually caught off guard and swept away as well before the cameraman's wife was able to help them up and back up the beach. A third man eventually came to lend a hand as well.
It's a bit surprising that the cameraman didn't stop filming at some point to go help his wife and the older couple out of the water. But I guess that's the job of a good cameraman... Never stop filming, even if your wife is getting swept away into the ocean.
Just a good reminder to stay away from beaches when there is a storm nearby.
