A wasteful tragedy

Here's a tragedy happened at Yanchep of Australia as reported by Jake Sturmer of WAToday yesterday:

The 35-year-old was walking her two dogs on the beach about 9.30am when one dashed into the water and got stuck on a reef.

The woman ran into the ocean after the dog and a freak wave swept her underwater.

The dog returned to shore, but the woman reappeared a short time later face down in the ocean.

A witness called the police who mobilised their helicopter to search for the woman.

She was found dead an hour later.

I can only characterize it as wasteful. But it is still another variation of onshore freaque wave tragedy.
