Fishermen run away seconds before massive wave slams onto shore

Two fishermen managed to escape just seconds before a massive wave slammed onto the shore in northern China.

The footage, filmed in the city of Linfen in Shanxi Province, shows a man fishing on the side of a reservoir suddenly standing up and running away, closely followed by another fisherman.

We then see what sparked the scramble as just seconds later, the huge wave smashes into the spot where they had been sitting.

See what happens in the video above.
