How two photographers unknowingly shot the same millisecond in time

Unbeknownst to each other, photographers Ron Risman and Eric Gendron happened to take almost the same photograph of waves crashing around the Whaleback Lighthouse in New Hampshire, USA.
I also didn’t know Eric; we each chose this location randomly; we both shot with different cameras (60D and 5D Mark IV) with different size sensors; the 60D has a burst mode of 5.3fps, the 5DMKIV is 7fps; we both used a 600mm focal length; our exposures and depth-of-field were almost the same as well (f/8 aperture, ISO 400, 1/1600th shutter vs. f/8, ISO 320, 1/1000th shutter); and ultimately we both selected the same photo from that day to promote. Come to find out we were only 28 meters away from each other. He was hunkered down under a picnic enclosure to help block some of the wind and I was up against a tree to help reduce the wind.A similar thing kinda happened back in 2011 in Huntington Beach, California, USA.
