Australian Surfer Has Lucky Escape After Getting Caught in 'Death Zone' Off Portugal

Australian surfer Ross Clarke-Jones had a lucky escape when a huge wave threw him onto rocks off Nazare, Portugal, on February 25. This video shows his struggles to escape what he called, when safely back on dry land, a “death zone.”

He told the Sydney Morning Herald: “I thought I was fine going into the beach and the rip just swept me into the rocks.” Credit: Alexander Triebel via Storyful
