An epic glacier collapse in Argentina was caught on camera by a tourist, according to a Feb. 11 News Term report. Amateur photographer Christian Grosso actually captured the epic collapse on camera and another tourist videoed the event.
The epic glacier collapse happened when an ice bridge connected to the glacier Perito Moreno broke away suddenly and plunged into the water below. Of the large glacier, NASA scientist Jim Foster said,
"This glacier is somewhat unique in that its path takes it across an arm of a large lake. Most glaciers don't have such trajectories, so bridging and tunneling, at least at this scale, is rather rare."
Only about 20 to 30 people witnessed the epic glacier collapse on Jan. 19, and Christian Grosso was lucky enough to be ready with his camera when it happened. The good news is, he was far enough away that the large wave of water caused by the collapse did not affect him.
