Chile: Firsthand video account of Tsunami waves in Pichilemu

The force and unexpected nature of a tsunami wave can be seen in the following video. It shows a group of friends walking on the debris strewn beach of Pichilemu, a resort town in central Chile, observing the previous tsunami's damage when they get caught in the rapidly rising waters. Take note of the boat near the horizon and how it ends up meters from them.
