9-year-old victim

And thanks to the new moderation policy we can't even...

...I mean, that's sad. When I played on the beach as a kid I never built anything taller or deeper than a foot or so. Which is why I'm alive today.

She loved being buried in sand?

I'm not convinced and I don't believe that is true.

...any longer.

Be safe.  Stay home.  Never go near water. Be sure throw rugs are secure.  Be sure that there are no bare wires.  Make sure to kill all germs.  Lock up all scissors 10 foot above the floor.  Don't listen to rock music above whisper level.  Don't use cell phones.  Don't walk, crawl everywhere.  Wrap yourself in bubble wrap and never leave the bed.

A better article about what happened.

"Gill said no national standards exist to restrict the depth of holes, though local jurisdictions often set their own rules. For example, in Virginia Beach, Virginia, the USLA's home base, beach visitors aren't supposed to dig holes deeper than knee-level, even for small children, Gill said."

"Beware of large beach holes" Pretty sure warning us of those is a violation

I would imagine that the knee depth rule would prevent small children from digging holes nearly as deep as an adult's.

Wow. I never thought of that, but having dealt with some trench rescue guys (fortunately not at a trench collapse), it makes sense. It is sad, because it seems like such an innocent activity.

Also, unless you're in construction, don't dig a hole in the sand that, when you stand in it, is higher than the top of your head.

I'm pretty sure he wasn't talking about never doing anything ever.

We were "that" family at the beach. Building cities of sand castles and moats and burying one another in the sand. Our son would dig for hours. It's a miracle any of us survived.

I feel for the family. I don't even know how you deal with this.
 
2014-08-31 08:02:32 PM
I'd heartily chuckle if each and every one of you was run over by a bus, but I can't make fun of the death of a child. To feel yourself suffocating and slowly dying, and to be the parents, desperately trying to save their daughter's life and failing? That's pretty much as bad as it gets. How farking awful.

I see what you did there.

In other news, this is probably the first and last time this tiny town that imprisons me will be mentioned in international news.

Back in the 90's, before everything went to shiat, my cousins and I would go out to the beach and dig massive holes, at least five feet deep and several feet wide. We had a blast, and they were a treat to other kids when we'd leave. It's always sad to lose that one kid out of a million due to a freak accident, but that's no reason to ban giant awesome sand holes.

Maybe it was a pre-spice formation caused by baby sandworms. I hear those things can be dangerous. Liet told me so.

Hello cowgirl in the sand

That truly sucks.  One minute she's having fun playing in the sand on the beach and the next minute she's buried alive.

ZAZ: When I played on the beach as a kid I never built anything taller or deeper than a foot or so.


Me too - I was just amazed at how if you dug even a small hole it filed up with water, but not from the waves covering it.  The water just seeped up from the ground.

 Which is why I'm alive today.

High Five!

What's the element of fun involved with making a giant sand hole?  The only thing I can imagine doing with them is jumping in and climbing out, which wouldn't nearly compare with the fun of playing in the ocean (which I assume is nearby).  Seems to me that it's a lot of hard work with almost no reward other than the satisfaction that hey, we dug a giant hole.

I've been in a hole at the beach up to my neck, and did the same to my brothers, somehow we survived.

I  live in Sandy as well, so I'm getting a kick...  Sure is a small world sometimes.

*shrugs* It was pretty neat, and with at least three of us going at it, it didn't take long to make an epic hole. We'd run in and out of it, throw stuff at each other from inside and outside the hole, and best of all, when it got really hot, it was nice and cool and shady at the bottom of the hole. There's the ocean too of course, but it was just one of those Things We Did.

At least we were smart enough to dig it where the hole wasn't suddenly going to fill with water, like it did here.

Hey Subby:

Do you know what story would be even more ironic and humorous? One in which the person who submitted this story submitted to having sand pounded up his ass until he vomited shards of jagged glass that had shredded his intestines and throat. Wouldn't that be ironic?
