Video: Californian diners get drenched after wave crashes through window
Dick’s Diner in Santa Barbara, California, should change their slogan to: ‘Fish so fresh it swims right onto your plate... literally’.
When Forrest Buchanan sat down in Dick’s Diner during some stormy weather he probably didn't expect to get soaked by an incoming wave seeing as he was safely locked up indoors.
However, Forrest was in for a salty surprise and luckily for us he caught it all on camera.
Here’s what he had to say on YouTube: “My breakfast at Moby Dick’s Restaurant while filming the large storm surf breaking on the pier in Santa Barbara, California. The swell increased with every wave that passed.
“I recall telling people at the table in front of me, the pier will likely be closed soon due to the high surf. One minute later. I see a set of waves approaching and pickup my smart phone to film. The video shows the wave breaking through the restaurant window.
“The dining room was filled with the sound of glass shattering and people screaming as a wave of water rush over the dining room carpet. Everyone froze including the staff.
“So, I rushed over to make sure there was not any major injuries. I proceeded to warn everyone of the danger that could follow with the next wave and to evacuate the room. We got the room evacuated without the anymore injuries.” [sic]
