Video: Pro Aussie bodyboarder Jack Baker burst a lung and coughed up some much blood he thought he was going to die after being launched into the stratosphere by freak backwash!


“I felt like I had loads of sea water in my mouth and throat that I was coughing up but then I realised it was all this blood. My heart sank, I tried to control my breathing and get myself out of the water and as I got onto the rocks everyone came running straight over to me. Every 10 seconds I was coughing up so much blood and I was short of breath. I was really scared I was going to die,” he said. Professional bodyboarder Jack Baker was almost proven prophetic after he told a photographer who was in the water with him that “this backwash is going to kill someone.” Then it almost did, and it was Baker that nearly died.
