The so-called ice bridge collapsed in the Perito Moreno Ledger, in the Patagonian region of Argentina, a cyclical phenomenon attracting thousands of tourists every time.
Ice Cream is a massive ice tongue in the province of Santa Cruz. Each year, this 250-kilometer-long giant floats deep into Archentin's lake.
When crossing the Perito Moreno glacier, it is increasingly interfering with the lake-feeding river. Water puts pressure on it and starts to break the ice a little bit, throwing a tunnel in it. Finally, the ice is no longer under pressure and collapse.
Ice Bridge collapsed late on Sunday, March 11th, evening. It is believed that the ice bursts will fall in the next few days. The last time this phenomenon was recorded in 2016, reports Reuters.
The Perito Moreno Glacier is part of the National Glacial Park, with a total of 2,600 square kilometers of icefields and even 47 massive glaciers.
The most famous of them is the above-mentioned Glacier of Perito Moreno, which extends over the southern side of Lake Archentin. Every year there are hundreds of thousands of tourists visiting here.
