Swimmer Rescued From Beach Hole

USA - Pompano Beach

A member of Austria's Olympic swimming team has been rescued after becoming buried in sand on a Florida beach.

Jakub Maly, 19, had spent hours digging a 7ft-deep (2.1m) hole in the sand then jumped in. It collapsed around him, burying him up to the neck.

It took 2 hours for the authorities to free him from his sandy prison.

Listen out for the best bit of the video - the Austrian team coach's comment:

About World Sport Bloopers

World Sport Bloopers was created following the frustration of using video sites. Many offered videos that were filed under 'funny' or 'humor' but were not specific to sport. It required a lot of searching to find what we wanted. Even when you found the video, it was often edited poorly or inserted in a news segment so it had less impact.

World Sport Bloopers is inspired by UK shows like Fantasy Football (hosted by comedians David Baddiel and Frank Skinner), the eccentric Frenchman Remi Gaillard and US shows like Jackass. We aim to bring you the best bloopers, fails and WTF moments. We hope you enjoy the site!!
