“This is the wildest thing I’ve ever tried in my life,” said Jens Møller’s voiceover after taping a nearby glacier’s shedding of a huge slab of ice, which created an instant tidal wave. “Woo! I’ve never been this close to dying.”

Møller was visiting Ilulissat, Greenland, and had joined his uncle for a boat ride to serve as translator for an Australian tourist. They stopped to look at the glaciers at Eqi, when it caught his attention with some cracking sounds, and suspecting that a bit of ice might fall off, he grabbed his camcorder. To his surprise, more than a little fell off, generating an aggressive wave that might have capsized the boat if his uncle hadn’t zipped them away.

“It got more exciting while the wave was getting closer,” Møller told OurAmazingPlanet. “We didn’t realize it was going to be that intense or dangerous a second before.”

Møller escaped with only a few bruises, but when the boat broke its engine on a chunk of ice on the way home, he decided that “We were pretty unlucky that night.”

It could have gone worse. If the boat did capsize, they would have been thrust into freezing water. And since Møller’s uncle can’t swim, it could have been disastrous indeed.
