A surf photographer captured the moment three fishermen were washed off rocks in Sydney, Australia, according to a newspaper which has published the images.

‘I took a couple of shots of the guys with the wash in the background, then the swell picked up quickly,’ Glenn Duffus told the Southern Courier.

‘I took a sequence of 14 or 15 shots and at the end there was no-one standing.’

The photographer then helped rescue the men who had climbed back onto the rocks, the report adds.

They were not believed to have been seriously injured.
