A woman documenting a massive iceberg from a boat in Newfoundland and Labrador recently received quite a shock as chunks of ice fell and created a huge wave.
Wanda Stead thought that their lives were in danger when the chunks fell into the Bay of Exploits, generating what looked to her like a tidal wave, CBC News reported.
"Run, Rick, go!" she can be heard screaming in a video that was uploaded to YouTube on Thursday.
"I think my heart came up, and I swallowed it," Stead told CBC. "I was petrified."
She estimated that the boat was located about 30 to 45 metres away from the iceberg at the time — "too close," she surmised afterward.
Newfoundland and Labrador's government recommends that iceberg viewers keep a distance that is equal to its length or twice its height, "whichever is greater."
This isn't the first time that a collapsing iceberg has created waves big enough to make people fear a possible tsunami.
In 2012, parts of an iceberg in Greenland broke off and generated waves that threatened to consume a boat, according to BBC News.
