This is the terrifying moment when a three-meter tsunami caused by a defective wave machine wipes out dozens of polar visitors in China.
The incident took place in the hugely popular summer tourism Shuiyun Water Park on July 29, where officials said 44 were injured.
Images made by visitors show swimmers deep in the pool, suddenly confronted with a flood of incoming water produced by the wave machine.
Described as a & # 39; tsunami & # 39 ;, the tidal wave measured up to 10 feet and can be seen sweeping away tourists, many of them and their swimming rings are turning upside down in chaos.

The video shows visitors standing outside the wave pool and also running for safety while realizing that the unusually large wave will splash over the barrier.
Tourists can be heard screaming as the water is launched over the barrier and some of them are knocked over.
Recordings made in the aftermath show a woman lying injured on the floor and bleeding from her legs.
A water park spokesperson told the local media in a brief statement: & # 39; It was caused by a mechanical failure. Only about 10 people were injured.

& # 39; The wave pool was closed for repairs one day. It has already been repaired and will be open tomorrow. & # 39;
Officials said, however, that no fewer than 44 people were injured, three of whom remained in the hospital with broken bones and serious scrapes.
The wave pool is also closed for inspection by authorities.
It is unclear whether the injured tourists have reimbursed their tickets, which cost 98 RMB (£ 11.70).
The large wave pool is part of the Yulong Bay Scenic Area in the Korean autonomous prefecture of Yanbian in Jilin Province in northeastern China.
The Yulong Bay Scenic Area opened in 2015 and includes activities such as a glass-bottomed bridge, a theme park, a wave pool and horse riding.
