This is the terrifying moment the crew of a $1million speedboat were nearly killed after they were catapulted 40ft into the air by a huge wave. The driver was apparently showing off to friends and took the 35ft Donzi powerboat out in rough seas. As he approached the 20ft high rolling wave he hit the accelerator to try and ramp over it.
The craft began climbing at a 45 degree angle but the power of the roller proved too great and vessel was thrown completely out of the water.
One of the three men on board was thrown high out of his seat as the expensive craft belly-flopped into the sea with such force it split the boat down the middle.
Crazy Ocean Jump
The injured driver managed to limp the stricken powerboat back to shore before he and his two passengers were taken to hospital for bruising and broken bones.
