Amazing video of near miss as car bursts through foam

AMAZING video of two police officers nearly being run over by a motorist eager to get through thick foam at Alexandra Headland is becoming an internet hit.

The video shows a bus heading through the foam when a  "wave"  suddenly picks up and heads towards the officers.

A set of headlights then emerges as a car plows through the other end.

Facebook user Michael Bell uploaded the video on Sunday afternoon.

By this morning it had been shared more than 9896 times.

Foam whipped up by wild seas at Alexandra Headland was still drawing crowds yesterday and posing problems for local businesses.

Despite police urging residents and tourists to cancel all non-essential travel, the lure of the snow-like foam on Alexandra Pde, near the intersection of Mary St and Pacific Tce, was too much for most to resist.

Hundreds have turned out to take a look at the salty and sandy "winter wonderland".

Winds rushing through the area picked it up and threw it over the nearby intersection. It reached up to three metres in height and was covering the entire road before police arrived to direct traffic around.
