An American woman died while rescuing her 12-year-old son after a wave knocked them both off a pier in Italy. A Brazilian tourist captured the violent wave, and the woman's sudden fall, on his cell phone camera.

Anne Sharrie Duncan, who lived in Naples with her husband, was standing on a pier in the resort town of Positano with her son and a friend when she and her son were engulfed by a sudden wave and thrown from the pier. She pushed her son toward rescuers, some of whom had jumped in the water after them, before being carried away herself.
