Man swept to death by freak wave

A man swept to his death in Spain saw the wave that killed him for only a split-second before he was washed away, the event was captured in video of his final moments.

An unnamed 43-year-old from Senegal was walking on the pier in the port of Ondarroa, when suddenly he was caught out and hit by a freak wave in stormy weather just before 11am local time on Tuesday, El Pais reports.

The man appears to be unaware of his danger as a wall of whitewater explodes over the top of the concrete pier, as the video shows.



He turns to run as tonnes of water come crashing down but seems it is too late.
Spain's Red Cross members reportedly launched a rescue boat to save the victim but he was declared dead after CPR failed to revive him.
