FREAK WAVE - Six people were rescued Monday after being swept out into Acapulco Bay when an UNUSUALLY LARGE wave washed over part of the resort city's coastal road. Photos showed the seawater reaching the wheel wells of cars on the hotel-lined boulevard, dozens of yards inland from the normal high-tide mark. The six people rescued were apparently walking along the beach when the wave hit and were pulled to safety by passing boats. The wave occurred on a sunny, hot day with no storm in sight, and its source was not clear. Such unusual waves can sometimes happen in good weather because of meteorological phenomenon occurring farther out to sea.
