“Ok, here’s what happened. We were in Ubud and wanted to take a day trip to one of the islands an hour and a half away. We booked a private speedboat with some of our friends - we were about 6 people in total. It was all good the first 45 mins until the ocean began to get extremely rough. The waves got so humongous, the boat was practically flying in the air and frankly so were we,” she added.

In the following lines, she said that at one point, she thought the ocean would take them away. She also shared about the injuries that she and her friends sustained during the trip.

“I have goosebumps even typing this because no words will do justice to the fear,” she added in the concluding lines of her post.

Take a look at the video here:

Since being shared a day ago, the video has collected more than eight lakh views - and the numbers are only increasing. The share has further accumulated close to 23,000 likes. People posted varied comments while reacting to the video.

“Something like that happened to me on my baby moon. I fell off between the boat and the landing pier, while 5 months pregnant! We weren’t ok until the ultrasound in two days told us so. The incident shook me deeply and I too am scared of boats after that,” wrote an individual.

“Gal last year we booked a speed boat with parasailing, the moment I saw the dark blue ocean I literally died. I love the ocean, but that water,’ added another.
