Kate Upton was posing topless on a rock in Aruba for a photoshoot when she was knocked off her feet by the huge wave and into the sea.
The 25-year-old was being photographed for the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Edition when the mishap occurred a few months ago.
The model reveals all that happened on that day in a video that the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Instagram account recently released. Kate, who was wearing nothing but a tulle skirt, covering her bosom with her hands, recalls, “The next coming wave didn’t look that large from my point of view but it must have hit the rock just right. The skirt with all the tulle, whenever it’s wet is very heavy and dragged me down.”
In the video, crew members are seen running to help the model as she disappears beneath the water. She added, “Everybody was very scared.”
