Buried Alive (8 Photos)

California teenager Matt Mina (17), was buried alive when the 6 foot-deep tunnel he was digging in Newport Beach collapsed on top of him. It took rescue workers 45 minutes to unearth Matt. He was conscious for most of the ordeal. "I was sure I was going to die," Matt recalled.
He has since made a full recovery.

    #8 is shopped – I can tell by the dorky look on his face.

    • dub

      That really does look shopped. But why?

      • TheBoris

        I was going to say the same thing but thought people would call me a troll. Even in the thumbnail it looks horribly shopped.

    fuck that noise, the worst way to go, other than drowning

    • DirtyArmySpecialist

      yeah… burning alive feels a lot better.

    • dOOb

      Not sure how they come to this conclusion… but I hear that drowning is the most 'peaceful" way to go…

      … personally, I think the most peaceful way to go would be mid BJ… but what do I know?

      • chiverous

        drowning is supposed to be the worst way to go because your still alive while oxygen deprived so theres this point where youre living but know youre dead kind of? i dunno thats what i heard

        • ostipher

          Drowning is by no means "worst". When I was small I was at a man made lake and I followed my cousin into the deeper end. I drowned because I didn't know how to swim, this was when I was around 5 years old (22 today). All I really remember from the experience was trying to stand up so I can breath but I wasn't able to so I eventually passing out underwater. Thankfully there was a life guard on duty. I would rather drown instead of being burned alive.

    Buried alive for 45 minutes, must drink own piss!

  • oddman

    there is no way #8 isnt shopped……

  • bigmikeskinsfan

    it never fails; some jackhole at the beach wants to see just how deep of a hole he can dig at the beach. they dont stop and think its sand, its close to the water so its not fully solid and you are just burying yourself alive. glad he is ok though.

    • thanks

      is that how it works?

      • bigmikeskinsfan

        yes..yes it is.—

    It's hard to feel bad for him since it was his own stupidity that almost killed him.

    3" punch doesn't work as well in sand as it does in a wooden coffin.

    • DirtyArmySpecialist

      • sheoncebelieved

        • Gooner29

          That's funny because I own all of California, so I own you both…. that's a lie, I don't own anything, I actually sleep on my buddys couch… one day though.

    • Jonnywackoff

      to prove that's really you in your picture can you do a "chive on!" or "Hump day" thing and make it your avatar for a day? I would really appreciate it! Because if it is you…..damn!

            • Jen

              its extreme hole digging!

  • Joe

    Stupid. You would think when enough people have died this way, people would learn.

    • sarcasm

      Do a lot of people actually die this way?? Just wondering, I dont live near a beach…

      • Greg

        Actually it isn't uncommon. Unfortunately, it mostly happens to younger kids before they know any better. Happen to a kid in my hometown (not near a beach). He dug a really deep tunnel, and when he went inside it caved in on him. Nobody was around when it happened, and he sadly didn't make it.

  • n1ghtstalker

    Well done to the people who rescued him but to be fair you were messing with natural selection there!

    • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=1521060132 Sterling Crawford

      Exactly! I was watching a show about lions, and they just let a mom and her cubs die after a cobra bite, but save this dick head?

      • oops

        so they saved him, now death skipped him and is going to the next in line. I wonder if he got off of the plane or the roller coaster?

    • http://thechive.com/ GernBlansten

      Humans as a species consistently defy the process of natural selection. Just look at how many catastrophically stupid people manage to walk among us on a daily basis, or even get elected to Washington.

  • http://www.douggoff.com Doug

    Um, did anyone bother to ask why he was digging a six foot deep hole in the first place?

    • HUH?

      a tunnel. a hole i could almost be ok with, but a tunnel? talk about digging your own grave.

    • NAACP

      You can't explain that, Doug.

      • Dug


    • Dug ... a tunnel!

      I did ask him, and he said he couldn't explain that! Muahahaha!

    • geez

      He was digging a tunnel because Holes are too mainstream.

      • Bluto

        Damn hipster…

  • German
