At the Jupiter Inlet in Florida on Sunday, a young girl was swept off the jetty and into the water by a fierce wave.

Tom Gaffney shot video of the incident at 9 a.m.

Video shows a strong wave crash into the little girl, forcing her under the guardrail and into the sea.

People quickly rushed in to pull her from the water. She suffered a cut to the head, along with some scrapes and bruises but is expected to be OK.
