This idiot abroad ignored the warning signs about the ice floating away. He proceeds to get stuck on a piece of ice, float away, toss his sweatshirt into the ice cold water, and then make a terrible attempt at gracefully getting back to land. A solid fail all around.

Witness the terrifying and strangely beautiful momenta a glacier in Iceland collapses, and sends panicked tourists scrambling for safety. This glacier collapse takes place at one of Iceland's famous outlet glaciers, Breiðamerkurjökull. Nature is scary and this video capturing the raw unstoppable power of a glacier collapsing is a testament to that. We're glad to know that everyone's safe. Talk about a harrowing close call!

The newborn iceberg measures about 278 square miles (720 square kilometers), and was seen by TerraSAR-X, an earth-observing satellite operated by the German Space Agency (DLR). Scientists with NASA's Operation IceBridgefirst discovered a giant crack in the Pine Island Glacier in October 2011, as they were flying over and surveying the sprawling ice sheet.
