WASHINGTON, Aug. 17 (UPI) -- A woman's attempt at taking a video of herself standing in knee-high water at the beach did not end the way she intended.
YouTube user Paige Stewart shared video of herself attempting to take a selfie before being knocked down by a wave.
"When I turned the camera around on myself I was envisioning that scene from the Little Mermaid where she's singing Part of Your World on the rock and the wave comes crashing up behind her," she wrote. "Turned out awesome. Just like the movie."
Stewart can be seen smiling into the camera as a strong wave hits her from behind, knocking her down.
The camera continued to film while she plunges into the shallow water.
