This took place in France. Disabled person filming unable to assist, but in hindsight he has helped in a different way, showing us what can happen. The elderly couple were saved, but with a warning to each and every one of us.

That is dramatic. I never understand why people take such chances with the sea, almost disrespecting it. It's like a living thing and will take you and spit you out if given the chance. Used to do a lot of sailing and have seen it at its best and worst. I have had a few scary times in the water.

scary. Good job the other guy was there to help in the way he did--he wasn't taking any chances himself and nearly copped it.

The poor couple, I hope they're not too traumatized by the experience.

Noted the video originally posted has been removed . Therefore I am posting another, longer vid of the incident as I consider it to be pretty important.
