Tourists Forced To Escape Tsunami Wave When Massive Iceland Glacier Collapses (Video)

A wonderful natural spectacle was caught on camera this Sunday when a massive glacier collapsed in an Iceland lagoon, leaving the startled tourists to run frantically as a major tsunami wave was formed.

Captured in on the edge of the Jökulsárlón lagoon, part of the Breiðamerkurjökull glacier can be seen falling into the water creating a series of waves that come towards tourists on the shore.

As the visitors flee in shock the lagoon is subsequently riddled with huge, rolling waves that approach the rocks on the shore which sent watching tourists scurrying away from the incoming water.

“Due to the sheer size and proximity it was a bit of a close call but everybody was safe and stayed dry.”
