Dramatic video shows a huge wave rolling in from the Atlantic Ocean and sweeping a woman off the rocks.

A 21-year-old young woman was visiting the Aran Islands when it happened.

She fell about 50 feet and broke her ankle.

She was able to make her way to a rock and pull herself out of the water.

Some quick-thinking tourists then tied a backpack to the arm of a coat and reached down to pull the woman to safety.
