Footage has emerged online showing a ‘rogue’ wave hitting a shipping tanker as it sails through the Bay of Biscay in the Atlantic.
Two crewmen can be seen on the bridge of the Pink Coral as the wave approaches from the starboard side, building as it gets closer to the hull.
It smashes onto the side of the hull and makes the ship bounce from side to side as water flows over the deck.
A second wave hits less than a minute later, with the starboard side once again plunging into the icy waters.
