This is the terrifying moment that a woman ends up in the water after a near-collision between two ferries from Ibiza.
Footage showed vacationers on a passenger ferry that seemed upset because a larger ship was approaching them at speed.
The woman who went overboard reportedly jumped into the sea for fear that the two ferries would crash.
The ships are named as the Kontiki II, which covered the route between Ibiza and the nearby island of Formentera; and Bahama Mama, who from Ibiza led the Spanish port from the mainland of Denia near Alicante to Palma in Majorca via Ibiza.

The incident was reported to have taken place yesterday just after noon in a busy shipping lane in an area known as Es Freus between Ibiza and Formentera.
The captain of the Bahama Mama, who traveled faster than the smaller ship, is supposed to have been told to switch off his engines to prevent a collision.
The passenger who landed in the sea, who was sitting on the Kontiki II, operated by a company called Aquabus, is not mentioned but would be good. Her nationality has not been made public.
An investigation into the incident was started by local maritime officials.

Maritime captain Luis Gascon, captain of Ibiza and Formentera, said: & # 39; a situation has occurred where a collision threatened and needs to be investigated. & # 39;
According to local reports, Aquabus had already fired the captain of the ferry because he had endangered passengers without waiting for the culprit.
Thousands of Britons take the boat to Formentera from Ibiza every summer to visit the beautiful island, which has no airport.
Formentera is famous for its white sandy beaches and clear water.
