Quicksand does exist!
I sank into quicksand while photographing moriche palms in the Wuari River
in the Lost World in Venezuela while filming The Fish Guys Expedition 3.
George Fear managed to help me out before I got waist deep. Even at that
depth it was extremely hard to get out. I felt like my all the bones in my
waist, legs and ankles were going to get detached in the joints as he pulled
me out. It took a couple of minutes to get me out and if I would have been
there by myself it would probably have taken me hours or would have ended in
a tragedy. Image taken by George Fear, June 9th, 2012.
