On July 9 at 11:20am, the bridge connecting southern Patagonia’s Perito Moreno Glacier to land crumbled. This is the first time it has collasped in winter. Some experts claim it is global waring, while others say it is a part of nature. Only about 40 people were on hand to witness this astonishing show of force.

This amazing event occured on Independence Day in Argentina and one can only wonder what that means.

There was a live video feed set up, but apparently in true Argentine fashion, it was not working at the time of the actual ice fall.

Here is the only clip I could find of it. Backed by Enya, it gets rather climatic (get it) around 2 minutes, 20 seconds.
