Life saving freaque wave!

Freaque wave aficionados can take some comfort from the following story from Australia's 9News (ninemsn):

A Sydney man who jumped from a notorious Sydney suicide spot has been saved by a freak wave.

The 45-year-old man plunged off The Gap at Sydney's Watsons Bay last night.

But a wave cushioned his fall and washed him back onto dry land almost unharmed.

Emergency rescue workers found the man with only minor injuries.

Helicopters winched the man to safety and took him to the Royal North Shore hospital for treatment.

The title of this report is "Freak wave saves man" -- so not all freaque waves are associate with destructive negatives. There is at least this one redeeming freaque wave story after all!
