The Dangers of Quicksand

Yay, got around to editing the rest of the footage from the timelapse day I spent with Comacchio. We explore the Lost World, coming across a beautiful yet deadly lake, populated by deer and exotic birds and surrounded with quicksand. Apologies to anybody who was offended by us using Holy Entities in vain.
I'm aware that if you get stuck in quicksand, you can't SINK since it's heavier than you are. You're more likely to die from exhaustion trying to escape. Make small circular movements with your limbs to create a layer of water between you and the clay and you'll more easily be able to slide out.
Of course, the goal wasn't to see what it's like to be stuck in quicksand, but rather HOW people can get stuck in what seems to be a silly situation. It looks like people walk on it, expecting it to be solid, then when it gives way under one foot, they shift their weight to the other to support them which breaks the ground under their other foot as well, causing both feet to be stuck in the quicksand.
With me, I didn't feel it break- it was more as though the ground wasn't there any longer. I immediately collapsed onto my knees and spread my weight as best as I could. It sure makes your shoe heavy. It eventually dried, allowing me to hit my shoe against the ground to get most of it off, though it's still a ghostly white colour.
An exciting and different day. We wouldn't have tried it after a spell of wet weather, that's for sure.

When I was about 10 I was so scared of the water I wouldn't take swimming lessons at a pool so my friends took me to a quicksand pit and taught me there LOL. Another time we were board and talking about something to do and somebody suggested lets go swimming at the quicksand pit. You should have seen three adults standing there loose it LOL. We finally had to show them.

Underneath the crust of the earth there is a deposit of quicksand. When he broke through he fell on all fours to distribute his weight.

Hollywood has made quicksand seem like it is something it isn’t. It depicts it as this inescapable death trap that swallows full grown men whole, but that isn’t true. On average, 1-3 people are killed by quicksand every year. While it is true that the more you struggle in quicksand, the faster and deeper you sink, pools of quicksand are rarely more than a few feet deep. The surface of a quicksand pool is very thin and often looks exactly like solid ground, but it cannot support any weight. Instead of drowning in it, what usually kills people stuck in quicksand is actually exposure to the elements. Quicksand is usually found in remote areas, so if a hiker got stuck in it, they would most likely die of dehydration or heat stroke. If you ever find yourself stuck in quicksand, here is what you should do: 1: Do NOT struggle. The more you move, the harder it will be to escape. Try to remain as calm as possible. 2: yell for help. Use anything you can to get someone’s attention. Scream, wave your hands, screech, throw rocks, anything you can to get noticed. Just don’t struggle too much, for you might sink further into the quicksand. 3: assess the situation. Look around you. Look for any sticks or rocks you can grab onto. If there is a tree nearby, look for any overhanging branches you can grab onto. Also, take into account the things you have with you. If you have a backpack, a phone, or even just a jacket, those things can help you tremendously. 4: how to escape. Lay down on your back. I know it sounds crazy, but the more you can spread your weight out, the better. Try to get your feet unstuck. Don’t yank them out, go very slowly. If you loose your shoes, it doesn’t matter. Your life is more important. Army crawl your way to safety. Get on your stomach. If you have a backpack with you, you can use it to prop up yourself. Put it on backwards and use it to keep your face away from the mud. If your hands get stuck, remember: pull them out SLOWLY. If you panic, you will sink faster. Once you get to shore, dont immediately stand up. Continue to crawl for a few more meters, just to make sure you are out of danger.
