The man was seen on the sea wall at Dawlish along with a woman and child as waves crashed against the wall at high tide.
 
The three were seen dodging the waves which were breaking on the wall, sending spray 20ft into the air.

As was seen in Newquay over the weekend, it takes just one unexpected wave to devastate a family forever!

I was waiting for a train to go to Newton Abbot yesterday.

The waves were spraying up and over the seawall walk way.

People were still walking on the sea side of the wall (and getting wet) instead of taking the more sensible route nearer the wall. I also saw a child standing right near the edge of the seawall with parents seemingly totally unconcerned. My heart was in my mouth.

 

Looking the other way there were people on the groin (where the boat trips go from) fishing and larking about. Again the waves were coming over and getting them wet.

 

Thank goodness there were no unfortunate incidents as a result.
