Teen Survives Being Buried Alive

Quote:
A teenage boy survived being buried alive on a California beach for half an hour after a tunnel he built in the sand caved in.
In a desperate scramble, dozens of holidaymakers pitched in to try to dig out 17-year-old Matt Mina, who was stuck seven foot deep, but sand kept pouring back into the huge hole.
Eventually firefighters managed to drag him out and although he was unconscious at first he has since made a remarkable recovery.

Mina is in a good condition today after the horrific accident on Newport Beach at about 3.40pm yesterday.

Authorities said the boy had dug between five to seven feet below the surface of the beach when the surrounding sand caved in on him.

He remained buried for almost 30 minutes while paramedics dug him out.
Dramatic video footage charts the desperate attempts by other people on the beach to save Mina.
Dozens of sunbathers gathered with shovels and other items they could use to dig as they frantically tried to remove the sand on top of the teen.
When authorities eventually succeeded in rescuing him, the crowd erupted in cheers while the boy was rushed to Hoag Hospital in Orange County.

He told msnbc: 'I was just really scared. I didn't know if anyone could hear me when I screamed for help... Once you're six feet under you can't hear anything.
'I through my head around to try make some room because my arms were behind me.
'I was falling in and out [of consciousness]. I thought I was going to die.
'I want to thank everyone... that helped me stay alive. I wanted to give a shout out to them and say thank you.'
When asked if his digging days are now over, Mina added: 'For now, definitely.'
Newport Beach resident Skip Snead told the Orange County Register about 40 people were digging frantically to save the boy.

'Everybody was thinking, "They're going to pull up a dead body,"' he said.
He described the moment Mina was dragged out alive. 'Everyone went crazy,' he said. 'I think he was in shock.'
Fire officials have since warned parents not to let their children dig deep into the sand at the beach because the sand is unstable.

This happened to a kid that went to my high school. Unfortunately he was buried for so long that although he survived, he was completely brain dead.

Re: Teen Survives Being Buried Alive

This shit of digging through sand and it collapsing is relatively new to me. It made me wonder, when I went through basic training, we had to dig a foxhole and by Army standards it had to reach the armpit of the tallest soldier(2 per foxhole). I remember it was sand and wondered if they've ever had an accident like these. The area had been used that way over and over.

Re: Teen Survives Being Buried Alive

Damn kid, probably failed Earth Science, sand is not clay, very porous and very unstable. A life insurance policy on this kid would be a great investment. (Just joking)
