Transcript for Massive wave hits couple posing for wedding photos
Up next here now a bride and her wedding dress swept off her feet. It is not what you think. She was trying to get the perfect wedding photo with her groom swept away by a rogue wave and now we're hearing about the split-second decision that the lifeguard made to rescue them. Adrienne Bankert here now with that story. Good morning to you, Adrienne. Reporter: Good morning to you, T.J. Yes, thank think this has a happy ending but this couple fortunate to be alive once that photo shoot led to the daring rescue. Oh, my god. Reporter: Watch as this couple is swept away by a huge wave. The bride and groom posing for wedding photos on the rocks at the edge of Laguna beach. This giant swell looming in the distance. The powerful wave sweeps them away. The man filming stops to call for help. Oh, my goodness. Reporter: He finds the pair again in the rough water as rescuers arrive passing a floatie to the groom then racing to the bride. She ditched the flotation device which is a brave move on his part and went out to rescue the female without a rescue tube. And was able to drag them close to one another. Reporter: The lifeguard attempts to pull her to shore and another wave crashes on top of them and the two lifeguards carry the drenched and exhausted bride onto dry land. Her soaked white gown dragging through the sand. Lifeguards say the waves fueled by high surf caught them off guard. No major injuries. Any time somebody can on the rocks they always have to be looking out towards the ocean so they can see any sort of wave that is coming on the horizon and put themselves in a situation that was difficult and precarious and luckily the outcome was positive in this case. Reporter: Okay, so lifeguards are warning if you head to the beach especially near the water's edge check in with the lifeguard, make sure they see you and ask them about current conditions. Guys.
