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