DO NOT DIG HOLES DEEPER THEN YOUR KNEES ON THE BEACH Sand can collapse and create an extremely dangerous situation!

In recent years this serious danger has been widely documented throughout the world and was even featured in the New England Journal of Medicine. Victims typically become completely buried in the sand when the walls of the hole unexpectedly collapse, leaving virtually no evidence of the hole or the location of the victim. Parents are often concerned about lesser dangers such as sea life in the ocean but are often unaware of the possibility of a potentially deadly situation on dry land when digging a hole in the sand.

Besides the potential for suffocation, holes create a potential danger for those people responsible to maintain and patrol the beach throughout the night. Remember, if you dig it, fill it in.
