Caught on camera: Osage Co. kids rescued after being swept to sea

(WIBW) - The miraculous rescue of two Osage County kids visiting Australia swept out to sea by a powerful wave was all caught on camera.

Their dad was recording the two kids swimming in a rock pool with their step-mom - when a series of waves battered the group.

Too far away to help - the dad watched as the three were carried out to sea.

"He said that everybody was fine, but our daughter was in an ambulance," said Amanda Baloch, the kid's mother.

“I of course woke up and told him, ‘Not everything’s alright if our daughter’s in an ambulance, what happened?’”

She soon found out - as she watched the drone video of powerful waves dragging her 15-year-old daughter, her eight-year-old son and their step-mom out to the Australian sea.

"When he sent me that video my heart dropped because I could’ve lost my kids,” Baloch said.

“It was calm that day, and it was calm before and it was calm after ... It was just a freak accident that these waves came up and took them out.”

Luckily, an off-duty officer rushed into action - swimming out to them with a raft and a fisherman brought his boat over to help rescue the group.

"I would love to get in contact with them and tell them thank you. I'm hoping I can. I'm grateful for them, I'm grateful for their step-mom. If she wouldn't have jumped in after them I don't know what would've happened," Baloch said.

“If it wasn’t for them, they probably wouldn’t be here.”

The kids and their step mom are a little bruised from being tossed into the rocks - but they're recovering and doing fine.
