A Chinese journalist gets too close to the story while reporting on a tropical storm in China's Zhejiang province. A 70-foot-high wave crashes down on her during her report of the tropical storm Nanmadol. Here's the story.

A local television Chinese journalist—wanting to have the best position for her live piece-to-camera—finds herself drenched Tuesday as a 70-foot-high wave crashes down on her.

The journalist—from Haining in China's Zhejiang province—was on site to report on the effects of the tropical storm, Nanmadol, at high tide. The site was at a local tourist spot famous for its spectacular waves.

The journalist misjudged the full force of the waves and is soaked when a high wave crashes down behind her.

Nanmadol hit China on Wednesday, coinciding with a high tide season.
