A beach in New Jersey has developed an intriguing way of killing people. The sand under shallow waters can sometimes just collapse, and suck people down to their demise. "[A] man [was] swept out to sea when the sand collapsed underneath him":
In July 2012, Brad Smith, of Horsham, Pennsylvania, was walking in ankle-deep water at the beach with his daughter when the sand collapsed, plunging them and a friend into the swirling waters. A passer-by on a personal watercraft rescued the girl, who was being held above the waves by her father before he drowned...
Domonique McNeil and Tasha Hart also lost relatives to a similar drowning there in 2009. The accident claimed the lives of Jamila Watkins, 27, and Shayne Hart, 15.
Is this another one of Gaia's attacks on the human race?
