'Get off the beach': Newfoundland iceberg breaks, stirs up huge waves
Iceberg break caught on camera near King's Point on Green Bay
An iceberg started to roll over and then broke apart, sending massive waves along the shoreline in King's Point, N.L., on Tuesday — and Jason Griffiths caught it all on camera.
The iceberg at first appears to be rolling over, but loud cracks can be heard in the video.

Not long after the berg starts moving, the top portion completely breaks apart and falls into the water.
"Get off the beach," one of the bystanders can be heard saying on the video, as the falling ice causes massive waves.
There have been a lot of iceberg sightings off King's Point, in Newfoundland's Green Bay, this summer.
