This may sound strange, but I still sometimes have nightmares about being sucked into the surf when standing too close to the shore break on rough sea days. The ocean is not to be trifled with!

Waves like that could easily knock such a small kid off their feet and drag them in.  A little bit bigger and as you fear they could take an adult.  Drownings are a regular feature of the Australian summer at the beach, even without the help of sharks, crocodiles and jelly fish.

The 500mm perspective compression makes us think that the girl was in the middle of the waves, but she was not.

Happens here all the time, especially where people venture out onto rocks and then get knocked off them and dragged into the rip tides. Doesn't help that the vast majority of the population can't swim either.
