Waterspout Knocks Over Child, Whips Up Debris on Texas Beach

Texas beachgoers ran from a waterspout on July 14, as it whirled over the sand, knocking over a child and sending debris flying on Galveston Island.

Mario Halkyer, who recorded this video, told Storyful he was meditating on the beach when he noticed a small waterspout, which grew in size as it came ashore.
