Pollution has been wreaking havoc on the environment for quite some time, but lately mother nature has been fighting back in a scary and bizarre way.

Sinkholes have been opening up on the Dead Sea shore and swallowing people. Although accidents are rare, it is estimated that there are 3,000 open sinkholes on the coast of the Dead Sea, and many more that have not burst open yet.

Some researchers suggest these sinkholes are caused by the recession of the Dead Sea, and salt dissolution.
