A giant wave came suddenly and washed them out while they were swimming in a splendid natural rock pool. This took place in Kiama, on the eastern coast of Australia, to some swimmers enjoying a relaxing day at the beach.

The wave is believe to have been caused by the cyclone,  Winston which is affecting the country at the moment, especially in Sydney, and causing delays to international flights. Notwithstanding the moment of panic for those involved, most of whom were children, there were no serious injuries.
