How to Survive Falling Into Quicksand

How to Survive Falling Into Quicksand

Picture this, you’re having a nice, relaxing walk on a private beach without a care in the world. All of a sudden, your foot drops into a deep and mucky puddle. You struggle to pull your leg out, but it just won’t budge. Before you know it, you’re sinking rapidly, and half of your body is submerged in cold, wet quicksand. The more you struggle, the more you sink. Talk about a terrible way to end a vacation.

    Thanks for the video! I was stuck in the quicksand and immediately was watching your videos, while inside quicksand, I did yoga positions and even hired a yoga professional to teach me, after 5 months of yoga learning, I held my breath and then called 911, they saved me!!

    Anybody seen a news story about someone dying in quick sand…lol

  38. Robert Malone on May 10, 2023 at 4:26 am

    Quick sand is a big deal. You know your in it, especially when you just keep sinking. It only gets worse as times go on. Best thing to do is not to do anything. To late when you keep squirming and your already neck deep kid.

  39. Hannah Duggan on May 10, 2023 at 4:26 am

    When I was 5 years old, I was at the beach with my family. I accidentally stepped into some quicksand and started sinking in. Then this old lady came up to me and said, "I got you." Then she lifted me out. I wish I could thank this old lady for saving my life, but she’s probably dead now.

  40. Didi on May 10, 2023 at 4:28 am

    Spent a lot of time contemplating quicksand after an unfortunate event when I was 9. During the lockdown I stumbled onto this https://youtu.be/Jcz1G5b33KQ

  41. Markstein on May 10, 2023 at 4:31 am

    Don’t know if it works the same everywhere but there was quicksand at the shore of a lake, I would go in for fun, waist level was max I could sink, so definitely risky for kids. Well basically I could move easily by using my shin area horizontally. Somewhat like walking on your knees.

  42. Terry Elias on May 10, 2023 at 4:32 am

    I thought qwick sand was. Actually water and I jumped in it
