When glaciers attack . . .

/, Cruise News/When glaciers attack . . .

It’s a hazardous business sightseeing in Alaska, as this video of a small tourist boat almost being swamped as it came too close for comfort to a calving glacier demonstrates. The shrieks and howls of excitement from passengers as a wall of of ice falls into the sea turn to panic as a mini-tsunami rocks the boat, causing one woman to fall and break her leg. The boat was carrying sightseers in Alaska’s Tracy Arm Fjord where the twin Sawyer Glacier’s reach the sea.
►Elsewhere in Alaska, the body of a 67-year-old passenger from cruise ship Disney Wonder has been recovered from the sea near Juneau after a kayaking accident.
