You'd think that
they'd at least put up a flag to let people know there's a
100m hole there. This happened in Saudi a few days ago. In areas
where there is fresh water under ground the locals dig wells
and support the sides with concrete and stones to keep the sand from
falling back in to the well. Some of these are up to 100 meters deep.
This particular one was 60 meters deep and 4 meters wide, located
outside the small town of Riyadh in the center of Saudi.
guys went out in the desert for a bit of 4X4 fun on a Thursday when
one of them drove in to the well and dropped 60 meters to the bottom
with his V8 Cruiser.
Rescue workers retrieved the
car. The driver had a mild concussion from hitting his head against the
wind screen. Hard to believe he is alive.
