A woman swimming at a popular waterfall in Australia accidentally captured the moment a Taiwanese national drowned as his friends desperately tried to save him.
Anneka Bading was using a GoPro to film herself and two friends at MacKenzie Falls in the Grampians National Park, west of Melbourne, on Saturday when the 28-year-old man slipped and fell into the water.
A group of people can be seen on rocks near a waterfall in the background frantically trying to rescue the man. His body was recovered at 9.30am the next day.
Ms Bading, 24, said she had been swimming close by when she spotted the man sitting with three friends on a rock near the waterfall. Seconds later, she said she heard his friends screaming and pointing at the water.
