Idiotic Restaurant Workers Tried to Stop 20-foot Wave With Their Bare Hands

A large rogue wave crashed through the glass exterior of a resort restaurant in northern Italy as storms continue to batter the country in severe weather conditions that have claimed at least 29 lives so far.

The Bagni Maddalena surveillance footage shows five members of staff washing the floor and tidying up at the end of their shift on October 29 when heavy wind and rain starts battering the restaurant’s exterior.

When they see the large wave approaching some workers try to secure the windows before water crashes through, flooding the room in Arenzano, northern Italy.

But the doors immediately give way and the waves sweep one of the employees across the dining room while another leaps onto the bar.

Restaurant proprietor Giovonna Damonte said she was hospitalized with lacerations from the shattered glass.
