Woman RISKS her life to retrieve beer kegs that were being swept by floods

A video of a woman in Australia risking her life to retrieve beer kegs during a storm has gone viral.

The video was recorded by the bystanders when the woman dived into the water in order to prevent the beer kegs from being swept away in the floods.

The metal beer kegs had drifted from the surf club in Currumbin on the Gold Coast into the waters.

In the nine-second clip, the woman can be seen running frantically towards the beer kegs and grabbing on to them. She then drags them to the other end.

“There’s nothing like the ocean, it’s pretty spectacular,” the woman told 7News following the incident.
