An arch-shaped iceberg collapsed, causing a scary tidal wave headed right for their boat. The couple caught the heart-stopping moment on camera! Have you ever seen an iceberg collapse? Ahhh!
A Canadian couple were boating in Newfoundland. They were filming video of the iceberg when they witnessed the massive collapse. It’s fascinating to witness it, until you remember that for every action there’s a potentially lethal icy reaction.
Then what happens next terrifies them. In the video you can hear her scream in terror as they suddenly find themselves in danger. In just seven seconds, the vast iceberg suddenly begins to crack, then completely collapses into the water below, causing a huge wave rolling straight towards them.

We’ve seen how deadly icebergs can be to even large ships. They were in New Foundland, Canada. This is where the Titanic sank back in 1912. That was of course due to a collision. However, an iceberg collapse can cause a tidal wave or even a tsunami that can be just as lethal.

Also, here are some other epic iceberg collapses:
Have you ever seen a tidal wave? They can certainly take out your boat, but you’re still not safe on land either.
These remind me of the scary videos from Thailand and Sri Lanka during the tsunami! It’s mesmerizing and beautiful. However, if you’re there, it’s important to prioritize getting out to safety immediately! These are very dangerous.
another iceberg collapse!
