ASTONISHING footage shows a man being flattened as he stops to film colossal waves caused Hurricane Irma as the megastorm barrels towards the US mainland.
The incredible footage was captured in Key West, Florida, the most southern part of the United States, which is set to be smashed by the killer hurricane.
The man is seen filming the powerful waves caused by Irma’s sustained 135mph winds with his mobile phone.
Wearing a baseball cap and waterproof jacket, the curious storm-watcher appears to be unaware of the danger he is in.
After filming the waves for around 10 seconds, he is suddenly blown back by one massive wave.
The man appeared to be uninjured and was able to pick himself off the ground after the incident.
