It’s enough to turn your stomach just by watching it – footage showing the exact moment a ship was engulfed by a monster wave.
The vessel was out in the North Sea when it encountered a fierce storm.
Video showed the bow of the ship as a 100ft wave rolled towards it, finally hitting it in a crushing blow.
Had the ship been smaller, the force of the wall of water could have spelled disaster.
Incredibly, a Scottish man could be heard in the video laughing as the menacing wave struck.
In between laughs, he said: “That’s f****** awesome!”
The shocking footage has gone viral since it was shared online.
Uploaded to Youtube, the video has been viewed 5.5 million times since January last year.
