(Scroll down for video) A video that was uploaded to the internet shows a man being swallowed up by a large powerful whirlpool.
The powerful whirlpool developed in Latvia that sucked in large floating debris and chunks of ice.

The whirlpool, developed in Dviete, Latvia near the banks of the Daugava River. The video shows a mysterious whirlpool agitation, that destroys everything that comes into its location.

While most whirlpools in nature occur as a result of fast moving streams meeting each other in opposite directions, often caused by tides, the whirlpool in the video seems more like a bathtub drain.

In fact, a longer version of the same video shows the mysterious whirlpool was formed by floodwaters of the nearby river that flowed into the entry side of a bridge. All waste is then channeled under the road where spectators are standing and watching the items flowing downstream.
We hope that the man who volunteered for this stunt did not get hurt when he was spit out on the other side.

“This is an amazing sight. I always love to see whirlpools form inside my kitchen sink and bathtub. Now that I know how this works, I will try and form one on an overpass during a major rain storm and record it for the world to see,” Kelly Fox, 43, of Orlando, Florida told after watching the video.

According to the European Federation of Rural Tourism, the Dviete River Valley in Latvia, where this video was recorded, is home to a massive wetland during flood season. The marsh serves as a critical area for birds, both for nesting and migration.Mobile video not loading? Click here to view
