This innocent-looking river turned out to be the most dangerous stretch of water on Earth
Thing are not always what they seem to be. This narrow river in Yorkshire, UK, appears to be just a lovely and innocent place to have a pleasant riverside walk, but the power hidden in its stream makes it the deadliest stretch of water on the planet with a 100% fatality rate... Can you believe this?
- Fast currents of the river combined with sharp underwater rocks create a real death trap hidden beneath the calm surface
- The turbulence created by the currents will render anyone unconscious just in a few seconds
- The bodies of the people drowned in the Strid were found only several hours after the accidents, as they were dragged by the powerful waters
- The Strid has left a lot of people dead, but the numbers are not what makes it the deadliest stretch of water on the planet. It looks totally innocent and nonthreatening, tourists and wanderers are totally unaware of its killing power - that's why it is the most dangerous.
In this comprehensive video a British fact seeker, Tom Scott, tells us more about the place, its history and the reasons for calling the Strid the most dangerous stretch of water in the world. Just take a look and see how innocent the river really looks:
