National Geographic Explores The Dangers of QuickSand


Reporter Jonny Phillips shows us the dangers you face if you were to step into quicksand. He has enlisted the help of a Coastguard rescue team because quicksand is nothing to mess around with alone. Within 8 minutes Jonny is waist deep in the sand and feeling like he’s stuck in concrete. The more you struggle in quicksand the deeper you begin to sink. To pull one leg free it requires the amount of force you would use to move a small car. Long story short, stay far away from wet sand.
