Massive Iceberg Flips Near Boat in Argentina: VIDEO


Here's the latest viral iceberg video, in which ecotourists appear remarkably calm while a massive piece of ice swings from under the ocean with potentially boat-eliminating force in Argentina's Los Glaciares National Park. Writes the videographer:

This Iceberg was "calved" by Argentina's Uppsala glacier.
