Tidal Surge in China

Tidal bore engulfs hundreds of tourists on the banks of the Qiantang River in China

Thousands of tourists flock to the banks of the Qiantang River in Haining, Zhejiang Province in China to watch an annual natural phenomenon. Every year a tidal surge creates a huge wave that charges up the Qiantang River with the largest reaching a height of 29.5ft, according to local media

Despite warnings from the police to keep well back from the river bank, many ignored the advice and ended up being swept away by the wave
