Glacier Collapse In Iceland Sends Tourists Running From The Waves It Causes

April 3, 2019

This is a video from the Jökulsárlón lagoon in southeastern Iceland of a piece of the Breiðamerkurjökull glacier breaking off and falling into the water, sending tourists across the lagoon scrambling as the waves it causes crash on the beach they were standing on. Man, that must have been exhilarating. "Rose would have still let Jack die." Oh, no question.

Keep going for the whole video.

Thanks to K Diddie, who agrees where's Mr. Freeze when the world really needs him?

    I can't remember if it was a music teacher from elementary school or some other teacher from elementary school but her son or nephew or something was "killed by glacier movement" or something. I hadn't heard about this in well over 20 years at this point...

    I feel like this exactly how people get killed by glaciers

    The "oh shit" moment for me was right at :21 when that swell raises. *chills*

    Just a couple of years ago I stood exactly where these people were running from. It's very hard to comprehend just how massive these walls of ice are from the distance.
