The incredible moment an Antarctic iceberg 'implodes' - almost swamping the people filming it from an inflatable boat
Travellers in an inflatable boat captured the moment an Antarctic iceberg 'imploded' - from a vantage point that was very nearly too close for comfort.
Dutch video editor Lex Coppoolse captured the footage in Wilhelmina Bay. Coppoolse says, 'The thing just exploded very close to our boat - or I should say imploded! It spat big chunks of thousands year old ice to our heads.'
'Zodiac' tours of Wilhelmina Bay's icebergs are common, with the tiny boats dwarfed by the huge chunks of ice.
But capturing the demise of an iceberg from such a close range is very rare indeed.
