Nazaré in Portugal is a well-known destination for the world's elite surfers. An incredible rescue from a massive wave was caught on video.

Professional surfer Lucas Chumbo came dangerously close with a gigantic wave and was threatened to be flattened in the impact zone.

The dramatic drone footage shows his teammate Ian Cosenza rushing towars Chumbo as the wave approaches. The surfer managed to hold on to the back of the jet ski and Cosenza accelerated as fast as possible.

Even though a mass of whitewater almost swallowed them, the two men eventually escaped.

The WSL (World Surf League) called the impressive incident 'one of the craziest rescues ever seen.'
