The Pacific Ocean tsunami center issued a tsunami warning, as the nearby islands of South Pacific Ocean had experienced an earthquake. As a precaution, the tour guide had reminded all tourists repeatedly during their "photography break time" that everyone must pay attention to their own personal safety; and he even advised everyone not to go near the beach. However, the couple did not listen as they wanted to snap a photo as a souvenir.

Luckily for them, a second tide swept them back near the shore, and other Chinese tourists nearby quickly helped them back to safety.
