Via Mother Jones: video of an iceberg collapsing, shot from a boat, as a woman yells frantically at her husband, Rick, who's driving the boat, to get the goddang heck away from the collapsing iceberg.

The video was shot in Newfoundland's Bay of Exploits (!) by a Canadian woman named Wanda Stead, and she spoke to the CBC:

With her husband hitting their boat's engine, the couple were able to move to a safer position, although Stead told CBC News on Thursday that her impression at the time was that their lives were in immediate peril. 
"All I could see was this tidal wave coming toward us," she said.

"I think my heart came up, and I swallowed it," Stead said. Do not mess with the Bay of Exploits.
