Daredevils Slackline Above Rocky Waters

A daredevil attempting to slackline across a 31-metre gap between two cliffs was almost washed out to sea when a freak 40-foot wave smashed into her – and the brush with death was caught on camera.

Coralie Girault was out slacklining in Cap Méchant, a beautiful but dangerous stretch of coast on the French island of Réunion in the Indian Ocean, where waves batter the blackened rock lava cliffs.

After hearing about the spot online, the 26-year-old had set-up the 31-metre line between two adjacent cliffs, suspending herself above the turbulent waters below.

Footage shows Coralie balanced precariously in the middle of the line about to stand up when a giant roaring wave crashes into the rock face and engulfs her.

Miraculously she remains hanging onto the slackline and appears unscathed moments later, as her pal captures the lucky escape from the relative safety of the cliff – though she admits had it hit a second later once she stood up, it could have ended in disaster.
