Watch: Woman and dog have narrow escape from freak wave

Aishling Phelan

This dramatic footage shows the moment a woman and her dog get swept up by a surprise wave.

Taken in Tramore in Co. Waterford, the video initially shows violent waves crashing against the coastline.

A man shouted at the onlookers edging closer to the turbulent sea to ‘‘Mind yourself.’’

One man stood on the wall’s edge as the waves plummeted towards him.

The dog owner ran frantically, gripping her pet’s lead, as the waves moved ferociously over the wall. 

She is eventually swept up in the rushing water and falls on her back.
